Even if you have put money aside for your retirement, through a 401(k), for example, these assets are vulnerable should you need long term care. Just one year in a Connecticut nursing home can cost more than $127,000. Medicare and health insurance may only cover a fraction of these costs. Learn how to protect your assets. Find out about the long term care insurance approved by the Connecticut Partnership for Long Term Care and at what point in your financial planning you need to include it. This program will take place Tuesday, November 13 at 7 pm in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.
