More than eight out of 10 people want long term care included in the agenda of presidential candidates, according to a poll by Public Opinion Strategies and the Mellman Group.
It also showed that nearly 70 percent of respondents have not prepared for the long-term care of their family or themselves. However, half of the polltakers indicated that they have known someone who has needed such care.
The poll results also suggested that Americans are willing to aid in long-term care programs at the state and national levels. More than half of the respondents agreed that payroll deductions for such programs would be allowable.
