Ashley has been researching the best resource for estimating long-term care (LTC) services and has found a great website. Genworth, the company that compiles the data, is the leading LTC insurer in the United States.

Idaho has a very simple process in most cases. As Mike’s known to say “Idaho is a good state to die in.”
