Department of Human Resource Management is offering some help
with a long-term care insurance plan through Aetna U.S. Healthcare.

care refers to a wide range of personal care, health care and
social services for people of all ages who can no longer care
for themselves. Under the plan, individuals receive financial
support for assistance with normal activities such as eating,
dressing and getting in and out of bed, whether at home or in
a nursing home. It is not the same as long-term disability, which
provides a percentage of an employee's salary.
