I heard a radio ad this morning that made me think about getting older. This one was for a local rehabilitation center that is used when you have things like knee or hip surgery. It is actually operated by an assisted living senior complex. My thought was how often older folks have some surgery and then end up in long term care. Low and behold there is an article about this type of health coverage on Marketwatch today I don't know what is going to happen when I get really old, I try not to think about it because I am not really old yet, and these days people live to be so much older then they used to be. I have seen people that are close to my age struggle and need some sort of assisted living. Luckily that is not me, at least not now. Do you think about what you will do when you are really old? Or do you just figure it will sort itself all out? I try to do the right things and I know there is no sure fire plan, I don't think that a long term health plan is a good idea for me. After working in a nursing home I do not want that for my future unless I am so incapacitated I don't know what's going on. And that happens, Alzheimer's is no joke.
