Long-Term Care in California: What Is It and Who Pays for It?


Long-term care can mean very different things to different people and matching the right level of service to the recipients is often unreasonably difficult. This webinar will examine the various levels and settings for long-term care, including some of the important rules and interesting issues involved. In addition, we will focus on payment options and how care recipients can identify good providers and maximize their care coverage while minimizing their expense.


1) List the major points on the long-term care continuum

2) Identify the factors that differentiate good long-term care providers from bad long-term care providers

3) Assess government benefit and private payment options for long-term care
