No one wants to think that they will get older and require medical care at some point in their lives. But, aging happens to all of us and it is best to have a plan, such as a living will, for these circumstances.
You can never know for sure if one day you will need long term care. Medical needs are unique for every person and the careful consideration of these needs can go a long way. In order to prepare for any medical needs you may have you should first think about what may happen if you become seriously ill or disabled. It is important to talk with friends and family about who would care for you if you have medical needs.
