Video: Genworth Financial Reveals Best Places in America for Long Term Care
Date:4/30/2009

65 will need long term care in their lifetimes. Such local information is invaluable to families and their trusted advisors in mapping out a financial security strategy to cover the growing cost of this vital care."

New to the 2009 survey is the Genworth Choice & Affordability Index. This tool identifies regions where nursing home care choices are both numerous and most affordable in proportion to the area's 65+ population - creating an index of the best places in the U.S. for nursing home care. The Choice & Affordability Index does not measure or reflect the long term care services capacity (i.e.; number of beds) available in a region, or the quality of care, but rather reflects the number of facilities in the region in proportion to the 65+ population along with the cost of care in that area.

Full results of Genworth's 2009 Cost of Care Survey, including the Choice & Affordability Index, an interactive map of the cost of care in all 50 states and 331 geographic regions, and other useful tools and information is available online at Genworth.com/CostofCare.

Choice & Affordability Index Snapshot

Genworth's Choice & Affordability Index highlights the great disparity nationwide between regions with many alternatives for affordable nursing home care and those with more limited options. According to the Choice & Affordability Index, the top 10 states for nursing home care availability and choice include:

    1. Iowa                                   6. Oklahoma
    2. South Dakota                           7. Missouri
