Introduction to long-term care
Anyone of any age may need long-term care (also called long-term services and supports) at some point in life.
An accident or a sudden serious illness, a chronic condition or disability can result in your needing help with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, eating, moving around, and using the bathroom. Some people need help when chronic conditions become worse as they get older. Other people live with a disability and choose assistance that enables them to lead full and productive lives.
