Cost of aging

Americans are living longer, but most are blissfully ignorant about what long-term care costs and who pays for it, according to a survey in Modern Maturity magazine.

The national average cost for nursing home care is $4,654 a month, the magazine reported. Only 15 percent of those polled guessed anywhere close to that amount. Most respondents guessed below that figure, and about a quarter didn't even know what to guess.
