Planning for Long Term Care Workshop Recent studies show that 40% of those over 70 need assistance with daily tasks. Two-thirds of those over 40 have done little or no planning. What option for care will be right for you or right for your parent when the time comes? Learn the differences in the care provided at skilled nursing and assisted living facilities and what in-home care solutions are available in the community.
