The only "good" thing is that my brother had the foresight to purchase a LTC policy long before these became popular. Mom's policy has a maximum $4500 monthly benefit for a caregiver in the home so in addtion to me we have a 24 hour caregiver who is wonderful. BTW, this is a LIFETIME benefit and from the looks of things mom is going to last a good long while given the level of care she gets.
Wise move on your brother's part. Lifetime benefit is probably rare today. The cost of an LTC policy on an individual basis are fairly high.
