Long Term Care Insurance

Long Term Care Research


Long-term care (LTC) is a variety of services which help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of people with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods.


It is common for long-term care to provide custodial and non-skilled care, such as assisting with normal daily living (NDL) tasks like dressing, feeding, using the bathroom.  Increasingly, long-term care involves providing a level of medical care that requires the expertise of skilled practitioners to address the multiple chronic conditions associated with older populations.  Long-term care can be provided at home, in the community, in assisted living facilities or in nursing homes.  Long-term care may be needed by people of any age, although it is a more common need for senior citizens.
