More than 70 percent of people over the age of 65 will require some amount of long-term care services during their lifetimes, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). If that isn’t enough, consider that HHS also says that anyone over the age of 65 also has a 40 percent chance of needing care in a nursing home with a 20 percent chance of staying there for at least 5 years. While long-term care doesn’t always translate to a stay in a nursing home, this important trend makes it imperative to understand the intricacies of the wide assortment of senior housing options available today.
