Below is some general information about cost of Long term care / general cost of care which most of us need or will need at one time in our lives:

"Nearly 7 out of 10 people over age 65 will require long-term care at some point in their lives", (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2009)”

“Nursing home costs in California average $250 a day in 2011 (or $91,250 per year). Of those who enter nursing homes, 44.1% will have a total lifetime use of at least one year, 43.9% will stay between one and five years, and 12% will have a total lifetime use of five years or more, (U.S. DHHS/CDC The National Nursing Home Survey: 2004 Overview). This means that more than half the people who go into a nursing home will spend between $91,250 and $456,250 (in year 2011 dollars) and one person out of every ten will spend even more, perhaps much more, than that".
