Types of Long-Term Care
These facilities provide care to people who can't be cared for at home or in the community. Nursing homes provide a wide range of personal care and health services. For most people, this care generally is to assist people with support services such as dressing, bathing, and using the bathroom, for people who can’t take care of themselves due to physical, emotional, or mental problems. Medicare doesn’t pay for this type of care and doesn’t pay for most nursing home care.
