Long-Term Care services are those services designed to assist someone who has
lost some or all of the ability to care for himself or herself due to an illness,
an accident or simply the frailty of aging.
Long-term care includes a wide range
of services which help people maintain the normal activities of daily living; activities
like bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting and transferring (like moving from a
bed to a chair or from a chair to standing, etc.). Long-term care services can be provided
in your home, in and through community resources or in a formal setting such as a nursing home
or assisted living facility.
