Women are the major providers of long-term care in this country, but they also have long-term care needs of their own. Women live longer than men, tend to outlive their spouses, and have less access to retirement savings such as pensions. In 2010, almost eight percent of all women were age 65 or older10 [Updated February 2015]. A common scenario is an older woman who cares for her husband and who discovers that there are few resources—financial or otherwise—to meet her own needs for assistance. For example:
Women who were 65 in the year 2014 can expect to live another 24 years to age 86.11 [Updated February 2015] In 2005, almost half (48%) of women age 75+ were living alone; compared to less than one quarter (22%) of men. In 2005, one in nine older women aged 75+ and one in five aged 85 or older, needed assistance with daily activities.
