What is Long Term Care?
Long term care (LTC) is the assistance or supervision you may need when you are not able to do some of the basic activities of daily living (ADL) – bathing, dressing, eating, continence, toileting, and transferring. Others may need help because of mental deterioration called severe cognitive impairment that can be caused by Alzheimer’s Disease, other mental illness or brain disorders.
A NEED MAY RESULT FROM: Accidents, Illness, Advanced aging, Strokes or other chronic conditions.
Long term care can be received at home, in the community or in a Nursing or Residential Care Facility. You may qualify for long term care insurance benefits if you can’t perform two ADLs by yourself for at least 90 days or require substantial supervision if you suffer from a severe cognitive impairment.
