Start owning your future

The Dayton-Prettner Solon administration is sponsoring Own Your Future to encourage individuals to create a plan for their long-term care, including how to pay for it.

Take an active role in planning for your long-term care needs

This short video asks four questions you need to answer before you can create a long-term care plan.

  1. Are family and friends willing to take care of you?
  2. Does your home have a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen on the same floor?
  3. How are you going to pay for in-home care, assisted living or a nursing home?
  4. Have you written down your wishes for end-of- life care?
