A Guide to Your Financial Options for Long-Term Care

An estimated half-million people were homeless in the United States from 2007 through 2020, and many of these individuals were seniors and veterans. Unfortunately, seniors who live on the street have little access to resources that can help them maintain their mental and physical health, and on top of that, many are living without the support of their loved ones.

Homeless seniors face more risks than those who reside at home or in long-term care facilities. In fact, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless, the estimated average life expectancy for homeless people is just 50 years, which gives little hope to seniors who don’t have a place to call home.

Thankfully, there are programs available throughout the country to help homeless seniors find stable housing and meet other basic needs. Click here to learn more about your financial options for long-term care, or call (855) 481-6777.
