(Page 2 of 2)

"Understanding long term care costs in your local market and how these costs tend to change over time is vital to developing a plan to cover expected future costs," Zabel said. "Genworth's Cost of Care Survey is the most comprehensive of its kind and provides invaluable information on long term care costs that enable family members to conduct informed discussions with loved ones about future long term needs and preferences in order to be more informed consumers of long term care services."

Now in its ninth year, Genworth's Cost of Care Survey provides Americans with both national and local long term care cost data, as well as information on cost inflation over time. Resources include an interactive long term care map (also available as a free downloadable iPhone and iPad App) of long term care costs in 437 regions across all 50 states.
