Nowadays people are living a lot longer than before, which means most of us will need some type of long-term care at some point in our lives.  Joe Anderson sits down with Senior Financial Advisor and CFP® Jack Dugan to answer questions regarding the costs and requirements of long-term care.   Also, find out the pros and cons of long-term care insurance versus self-insuring.
