In the HHS survey, 15,298 non-institutionalized Americans aged 40-70, a statistically-significant sample of the age group, answered seven questions about long-term care personal concerns and ten questions about long-term care actions.
CONCERNS: What is your degree of concern about:
1. Losing independence
2. Being a burden on your family
3. Losing control and choice over LTC you might need
4. Being unable to afford high-quality care
5. Using up savings/income to pay for nursing home care/services
6. Becoming poor and having to rely on Medicaid
7. Being unable to depend on family/friends for care.
ACTIONS: What is your degree of willingness to:
1. Have family/friend move in
2. Move in with children/family/friend
3. Rely on spouse/family/friend
4. Attend adult day care
5. Hire aide or agency for care
6. Hire live-in caregiver
7. Move into assisted living facility
8. Move into nursing home
9. Make modifications to home
10.Use value in home to pay for care.
• More than 75% of respondents said they had at least five of the seven personal concerns.
• High on the list were losing independence and being unable to depend on family or friends for care.
• Personal concerns varied little by wealth or age.
• Of the ten actions, most respondents expressed willingness to modify their homes or have a family member or friend move in.
• But fewer than 50% were willing to move in with family/friends or use the value in their home to pay for care.
• The wealthier respondents were more willing to take actions that cost money, such as secure long-term care insurance or tap savings to pay for in-home care.
The report concludes, “These findings highlight the need for increased education on the … choices and financing options.”
“All Americans would benefit from considering such questions,” Robinson adds. “First the personal concerns, which are often hidden, then the action options.”
