In-home or nursing home care isn’t the type of thing we like to think about. But the reality is someone in your family is likely to need it which could bring on a financial burden.

But what about your parents? Will you be out of pocket for your parents’ care one day? It’s not a fun conversation but it’s a prudent one to have as you work on your financial planning.
