About Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care describes the care required for an individual who, due to a disability, whether by an illness, accident, cognitive impairment (such as Alzheimer’s), or old age, needs assistance performing activities of daily living. While long-term care is commonly associated with care in a nursing home, it can also be obtained at home or in assisted living. Proper planning can greatly increase the availability of long-term care at home.
