Researchers, Stephanie Moulton, Caezilia Loibl, and Donald Haurin, from The Ohio State University shared study background and findings for their research on “Debt Stress and Mortgage Borrowing in Older Age: Implications for Economic Security in Retirement”, which was funded through the Social Security Administration’s Retirement and Disability Research Consortium.
One in three 65-year-olds will require long term care at some point in their lives. Medicaid currently covers nursing home expenses for 6 out of 10 residents.

In these states, moving into a nursing home is the only way to get help paying for care.
