Every month is some type of awareness month. In many cases, a single month may represent awareness for several different medical or health conditions.
November is LTC Awareness Month. LTC = Long-Term Care
If you celebrate Thanksgiving in November, remember that these holidays may be a good time to discuss end-of-life care and other issues when you have the means and the luxury to openly discuss your wishes in front of family members. There are so many different forms of LTC, so it's important to be aware of all the options that exist for those who develop health conditions and require some level of home care, assisted living, or skilled nursing.
Don't forget that you can also purchase LTC insurance, since traditional health insurance may not cover all your LTC expenses.
