We asked 44 senior care experts about why only 37% of Americans think they will need long term care, yet 69% actually will. Learn about the issue and solutions.
Why is there a drastic difference in people’s perception vs reality?
- People are in denial over aging and what comes along with It.
- Consumers are optimistic in our youth-oriented culture. Why worry now anyway?
- People equate aging and long term care with death and defeat.
- The reality of aging is not a powerful enough motivator until it hits close to home.
- Care has been driven by crisis management versus proactive and preventative care.
- There is not enough discussion on what long term care is. It’s not just « nursing homes ».
