LTCi: When to make a claim

Courtesy of co-blogger Mike:

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person is ready to make a Long Term Care claim for Assisted Living?"

"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Here’s your claim form."
