You never know when you might be disabled by an accident, illness, or stroke that may require Long Term Care. It can happen at any age. Long Term Care provides specific personal care services when you are unable to take care of yourself without assistance for an extended period of time. People most often think of nursing homes for Long Term Care, but care might also be given in your home or community, as well as in other qualified facilities.
More than half of the U.S. population will require Long Term Care at some point in their lives, and one out of five Americans over the age of 50 is at risk of needing Long Term Care in the next year. Young people may also require these services.
