Worrying Medicare Long Term Care – Common Misconception

Long term care insurance is not generally included under Medicare. Long term care is the care you need when you are no longer able to look after yourself due to age or illness. This video answers that question, which is that without long term care insurance, even if you are in Medicare, you would still need to pay for your custodial care and without sufficient money/ when your savings run out, you will need to apply for Medicaid. Under Medicaid there is little choice where you will be placed, and it will be in a care home most likely. You would not be allowed to stay at home, normally under Medicaid.

Heart-Wrenching Video Shows How One Elderly Man Confronts Loneliness

In just over seven minutes, Barcelona-based filmmaker Theo Putzu manages to paint the most heart-wrenchingly beautiful depiction of loneliness Vimeo has ever seen. Titled “Paper Memories,” the short film documents one elderly man’s relationship with what appears to be his late wife, a touching story recounted using 4,000 photographs pieced together in a delicate stop motion creation.

In the video, the lead character, a thin, gray-haired figure who walks with the help of a cane, can be seen sifting through black-and-white snapshots of an older woman. As his stare lingers on the various images, the woman begins to move, guiding him on a journey throughout a picturesque, beachside village. Their nostalgic walk finally results in a poetic, otherworldly reunion, a meeting shrouded in tranquility that lets the viewer guess how their saga ended.

Watch the video above, but be warned — you will need tissues on hand. Let us know your thoughts on the miniature film in the comments.
