Consumers (think they) are not very likely to need help in later years from friends and relatives.

Although survey participants said they understand LTC options and resources, and might reasonably have been supposed to have seen the studies showing that about three-quarters of elderly people need at least a little help as they get on in years, only 19 percent of the participants said they thought their friends and relatives would end up taking care of them.

About 9 percent said they own some kind of LTC insurance.

Another 14 percent have what might be described as coulda, shoulda, woulda coverage: They’re thinking about long-term care insurance.
