What is Long-Term Care?
Long-term care typically refers to non-medical care for patients who need assistance with basic daily activities.
These services can be provided in the home or in a facility, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Long-term care is often related to seniors, but may be used for a person of any age, should they suffer from a serious injury or have a chronic illness or disability which prevents them from completing daily tasks.
