No Surprise: Boomers Don't Want to End Up in a Nursing Home

But they don't want to burden family members either.

If I ever got sick, I think I'd like to be at home with my family. The other option for long-term care is, of course, paid caregivers. But if baby boomers of means have their way, they will be taken care of by a combination of the two, a new survey found.

Some 49 percent of adults between 50 and 70 years of age want to be taken care of at home by both family and professionals, according to a Lincoln Retirement Institute and Mathew Greenwald & Associates online survey of 1,011 adults with household incomes of at least $75,000 or total household financial assets of over $250,000 (not including the value of a home or other real estate). The rest of the boomers preferred long-term care at home with professionals only (35 percent), a nursing home (8 percent), and at-home care with family only (7 percent).

Tell me, who would you like to take care of you in your final days?
