Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

A majority of boomers are concerned about long-term care, enough to determine how they will vote in next week’s election. Eighty-four percent say the candidates’ position on long-term care issues will affect how they vote. More women than men are concerned about the candidates’ positions, with 88 percent of women saying the issue is important to them, compared with 79 percent of men.

Among boomer households making at least $75,000, 78 percent say a candidate’s position is at least somewhat important when deciding who to vote for, however only 27 percent said it’s “very important,” and 21 percent said it’s “important.” Nineteen percent said it’s not important at all.
