Often times, a patient requires care over an extended period of time. Such long-term care needs may include memory disabilities, terminal conditions, physical disabilities and illness consistent with the aging process. Long term care may last for weeks, months or years in a traditional nursing home setting.

Many patients need long-term assistance with the activities of daily living which can include:

  • Walking
  • Bathing and dressing
  • Personal hygiene and grooming
  • Administering medications
  • Pain management
  • Memory support care
  • Assistance with eating
  • Restorative therapy
  • Wound management
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Spiritual care
