Long-term care facilities and communities provide an invaluable service throughout the country. In November, we bring awareness to these facilities and what exactly it means during Long-Term Care Awareness Month.
“Long-term care” encompasses a wide range of healthcare facilities and services, including assisted living communities, home health assistance and other technologies or services where staff are on-hand to provide assistance to those who need it. Care provided is not always medical, and according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the majority of Americans 65 or older will require long-term care at some point in their lives.
Preparing for long-term care sounds daunting, but with the right mindset and a little insight, everyone can create the long-term care plan for themselves. Check out this helpful guide from AARP filled with resources and frequently asked questions to help you prepare.
