The National Institutes of Health [NIH] recently released some helpful videos that you can use to think about your future. These videos can help you consider planning more actively for how you will want to see your life further down the road. Enjoy taking some time to view and think about your options when there is no stress or pressure to make any immediate decisions. Here is the link to the long term care videos: http://nihseniorhealth.gov/videolist.html#longtermcare .
Another area to explore on the NIH site is the "Planning for Long Term Care" page where you can read about ways you can plan out your decisions in important areas of health, legal and financial. The information is broken down in an easy to follow format. Here is the link: http://nihseniorhealth.gov/longtermcare/planningforlongtermcare/01.html .
Lastly, on many of the NIH pages, there are other helpful resources available to answer frequently asked questions or give you opportunities to further explore a topic. Happy Planning!
