Shopping for Long Term Care Quote: Is it that Important?

Have you ever noticed that people only make significant changes in their lives once they’ve experienced something they don’t want to relive in the future? No? Yes? Well, my answer for that is a resounding of course! It only dawned to me when I found out that my grandmother is not doing well. She’s starting to show signs of Alzheimer’s and with the looks of it she’ll extinguish her funds soon enough for receiving long term care.

Just to give you a brief background, Alzheimer’s is a condition that affects not only memory but as well as your behaviour. Are you aware that you can put the blame on family history for this, if a close relative of yours say like your parents or siblings have Alzheimer’s? How I wish it would be easy to nudge this away from my family.

I’m not freaking out, my mom is not even freaking out but I’m just a little bit concerned. I don’t want to be in my grandmother’s place without taking all the necessary steps to secure my future and losing all my hard-earned money just because I failed to plan ahead of time despite having all the options and resources to do it.

As early as now I’m looking for long term care quote. I’m not just considering one insurance company. It’s just the same as shopping. I don’t buy the first dress I see on the rack and feel good about it. Life is full of choices and I’ll definitely exploit my freedom to explore my options until I find the right one for me.

It’s hard to earn money these days and as much as possible I want to invest in a policy that can give me more than what I’ve paid for. I have a good feeling that by shopping for quotes I will be able to find a long term care insurance that will perfectly suit me in the future.

So aside from money I’m also concerned with the benefits. Is it enough to cover my long term care expenses? Will I be able to afford staying in a facility or hire a caregiver? These are some of the questions that are running in my mind right now which can only be answered if I compare quotes from several carriers.

It’s also one effective way to avoid fake companies or those who are licensed to sell this type of insurance. Again, I don’t want to put my money to waste and brave the future with no insurance so it would be really wise to compare quotes and see how reliable these companies are before I make a decision.

I’m also asking around, friends and acquaintances that have this type of policy aside from shopping for long term care quote.


I’m pretty sure I can save a lot of money and I will be taken good care of in the future by shopping for ltc quote as early as now. This is just the first step and there’s still a lot of things to take care of.
