For some elderly people, long-term care means big-time money and it's nearly impossible to afford the need.

While investing in long-term care, it's always important to adjust your plan depending on the need and how much you can actually afford.

  • Self-insure/set aside account
  • Long/short-term care insurance
  • Social Security income with Medicaid
