Growth in Virginia Long Term Care Costs Outpacing the Rate of Inflation, According to Annual Genworth Financial Study
Date:4/30/2009

in Virginia.

"Many Virginians who had planned to tap their hard-earned nest egg to cover future long term care costs are finding this may no longer be a viable option given the economic downturn," said Buck Stinson, president, insurance products at Genworth Financial. "Two-thirds of people over age 65 will need long term care in their lifetimes. The localized information provided by Genworth's 2009 Cost of Care Survey is invaluable to families and their trusted advisors in mapping out a financial security strategy to cover the growing cost of this vital care."
