Creating a long-term care plan is a crucial part of reaching older age. However, many people do not know how to approach this task, or do not know they should do it at all.
Long-term care refers to the non-medical services and care many people require to meet their personal needs in their daily lives. Long-term care services can include tasks such as bathing, eating, dressing, walking and driving, to name a few. Some people may need long-term care for just a few months, some may need it for a lifetime, and some may never need it at all. But, it is always smart to be ready for any emergencies, injuries and illnesses that may occur in older age.
