Poll: Aging US in denial about long-term care need

A poll
from the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found people 40 and older

aren't doing enough to prepare. But about 47 percent say they have taken one
step, creating an advance directive to outline the medical care they'd want if
they couldn't communicate.
