Long-Term Care Planning

Due to longevity and the increased number of years that individuals are living with chronic illness, there is a greater likelihood that some type of long-term care services will be needed at some point in one’s lifetime. Planning ahead, before a crisis limits the alternatives available, makes navigating the long-term care system less burdensome on you and your family.


We encourage individuals and families to meet with us for an options counseling session to discuss such issues as:

  • Advance directives
  • Financial cost of care
  • Long-term care options
  • Medicare and Medicaid issues
  • Needs and resources

Such a session does not provide legal or financial advice but allows for a more thorough understanding of the long-term system as it applies to an individual’s situation.

For more information, call the Office of Aging at 315-253-1226.
