There’s a common misconception that local long-term care means nursing homes, but people must know how many options there actually are. The Youtube video “What is Long-Term Care?” explains the great benefits of each option perfectly. So, let’s find out more!
Long-term care consists of many services and support for anyone who needs them.
The most popular kind is personal care, where a particular caregiver will go to their homes and tend to them. This is also known as home-based care and includes healthcare, personal care, homemaker services, companion services, and emergency response systems. Most people who hire home-based caregivers need help dressing, bathing, cleaning, cooking, etc.
Local long-term care also consists of services outside people’s homes, often called community-based services. You can expect adult daycare programs, senior centers, transportation services, meal programs, and respite care. Some people might need both home-based and community-based services, but the idea is that the elderly can stay in their homes and still live full lives with some assistance.
