And speaking of cost of care....

Yesterday, we noted trends in cost of healthcare over the next decade. But what about the cost of Long Term Care? Well, the folks at Genworth have just released their latest "Cost of Care Survey," including an interactive map and state specific data.

According to the Executive Summary:
■ The National Median Hourly Rate for home ehalth aides is $20
■ Adult Day Care now runs about $69 a day
■ Assisted Living Facilities now north of $3600 a month
■ And full on nursing care is $220 a day (semi-private room)
Now's an excellent time to review your current coverage, or to contact a reputable, independent agent with experience in this market.

In the meantime, you can stop by Genworth for even more in depth analysis and information, including the aforementioned maps and charts,.
