Why is the long term care conversation so important to have with Mom and the women in your life? We're sure you already know that the life expectancy of women is higher than that of men, but did you know the difference is an average of 5 years. Also, women have higher rates of disability and chronic health problems. American Association for Long Term Care Insurance reports that women represent more than two-thirds of Americans age 85 or older, and more than 70 percent of nursing home residents are women!
