What is long-term care?
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.
Long-Term Care Insurance provides funds to help you cover long-term care costs in the same manner Health Insurance provides financial coverage for doctor's visits and hospital bills.
To understand how long-term care services are provided, it is first important to understand the overall concept of Long-Term Care.
Home Health Care
Simply put, Home Health Care is exactly what the name implies - long-term care services provided in your home.
When care at home or in the community is no longer an option, Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Facilities may be considered.
