Caregivers more aware of potential LTC needs

Awareness also heightened among younger people.

Those who act as caregivers are much more aware of how to address their own long-term care (LTC) needs. Yet many Americans remain uncertain over how to handle their LTC requirements if the situation ever arose. Those somewhat contradictory findings came to light in a recent online survey conducted by Northwestern Mutual and Harris Interactive.

In early October, roughly 2,000 adults age 18 or older were polled. More than 300 were identified as caregivers. Of those caregivers, 69 percent said they had made arrangements to tackle their own LTC demands, and only 22 percent stated they were unsure of their future LTC plans.
