Long Term Care is the assistance a person may need with the basic activities of daily living – eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting, and continence. It can also include supervision needed to protect a person’s health and safety. The need for Long Term Care may develop from things such as an accident, illness, stroke, advanced age or other chronic condition such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Parkinson’s disease. Long Term Care consists mainly of personal care rather than medical care, which is typically covered by a health plan.

Long Term Care can be provided…

  • In your own home
  • At an adult day care center
  • In an assisted living facility or nursing home

What does Long Term Care Insurance Typically Cover?
