NY Connects ~ Choices for Long Term Care
What is long term care?
Long Term Care services are what a person needs over an extended period of time in order to improve or maintain healthy or daily function.
Long term care services may include nutritional, medical, social, housekeeping or rehabilitation. These services can be provided at sites in the community where a person lives, in a persons own home, in a residential setting or in a nursing home.
There are many benefits to planning ahead. Long term care may help you get the services you or a loved one will need that will allow the individual the ability to live safely in the most comfortable setting.
Planning ahead will allow the individual to have control over their future. It will also give insight into the various options that are available in the community.
Advanced planning will help the caregiver be prepared and help reduce emotional and financial stress.
