Long-term care insurance differs from standard health insurance in that it aims to provide coverage for extended care and service. People who benefit from long-term care insurance usually aren't actually "ill." They do, however, require help in accomplishing everyday activities, whether getting dressed for the day, eating meals or anything else. If an individual has long-term care insurance, it typically pays for assisted living, home care, nursing home and hospice costs. This type of insurance provides various advantages. If an elderly person doesn't want to depend on his family for day-to-day assistance, it can help give him the security he needs.
