The Advisor's View of Long-Term Care Planning

35 Milllion worldwide with dementia and growing - World Alzheimer's Report 2013

Each year the World Alzheimer's report is published, showing the impact of an aging planet and the increased need for dementia care.  Here are a couple of eye-opening stats:

  • Number of people worldwide with dementia expected to be 70 million by 2030 and 115 million by 2050
  • The cost of dementia care accounts for 1% of the worlds GDP.  In some wealthier countries, the percentage is much higher and is growing
  • The reports to financing recommendations, including private LTC insurance (mandate purchase) and other social insurance programs.

One thing people on the planet seem to have in common - they'd prefer to have care provided at home if needed.
