Nursing home and assisted living services are more common than ever. These facilities fill an essential role in our communities. However, exceptional care costs money. According to a 2013 Genworth study, the average cost of nursing home care in Utah per month was around $5,200 and the average assisted living cost per month was right around $3,000.

Long term care costs can drain an estate about as fast as anything. That is why it is imperative to have a long term plan. Having adequate liquid assets, long term care insurance, or proper Medicaid planning are some of the ways to make sure you are prepared.
