Planning for Long-Term Care
Care is expensive and 70% of Washingtonians will need it at some point in their lives. Here are some resources to help you get started with planning for your future care needs.
Your Options for Long-Term Care
Start by asking yourself: where do you want care?
Knowing ahead of time how you would prefer to receive care can help you and your loved ones make good decisions when you need it. People may receive long-term care from a loved one or a professional caregiver, at home or in a residential care setting. Beginning in July 2026, if you need care and have met contribution requirements, the WA Cares Fund will be able to help you access these services.
