World over, a large part of long-term care recipients are seniors above the age of 65 years. Long term care involves a set of services designed to meet the personal and health care needs of a person. Such services help people live safely and independently. Long term care may be required in a host of situations such as
- Rehabilitation after a hospital stay or a surgical procedure
- Recovery from illness
- Permanent disabilities
- Chronic medical conditions
- Progressive degenerative neurological conditions like dementia
- Cognitive disabilities because of injury
- End of life care
Depending on the underlying conditions, the long-term care requirement may be for a few days or many years. Caregivers help seniors engage in activities that they can still perform despite the underlying condition. These may be physical or cognitive activities that help keep intact the senior’s functioning faculties from declining.
