  • What are long term services and supports?

  •  Long term services and supports (also known as long term care) include a range of services and supports that can help people of all ages remain independent in their daily lives. Long term services and supports are both medical and non-medical services that help to maintain or improve daily functioning and health. Services can be provided at home, in community-based settings such as a senior center, community center or day care, or residential settings such as Assisted Living Residences, or in nursing homes.
