Montana is a Western state in the US whose residents enjoy large amounts of land, ranking 48th in population density. The wide open spaces, lakes, rivers, and Rocky Mountains landscape draw tourists from all over the nation to Montana, most commonly to Yellowstone and other National Parks. The breathtaking scenery explains the state’s unofficial nickname of “Big Sky Country”. The calm way of life in Montana is often recreated through art and photography, with many famous artists producing series about the state.

Residents of rural states like Montana are in especially great need of planning for their long term care, so they are not scrambling to find services and facilities if a situation arises.

Montana established a Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Program for the state in 2009, to encourage Montanans to invest in their health and protect their assets.
