Does your Krankenkasse help finance your stay in a retirement home?

I am just looking forward a couple decades.. in the best case each of us will end up in an old folk's home here in good old Switzerland (if we choose to stay here), and I know they are ridiculously expensive, starting at 6K a month for no special care, and the sky is the limit. I know if you are a citizen your local village will cover your costs, but only after you've burned through your entire net worth first. Question: does anyone know if your private health insurance will cover at least some of the costs of long-term care? Or should I visit Dignitas at that stage so at least the kids inherit something.
