Understanding Long Term Services and Supports
Long term services and supports is a range of medical and or social services designed to help people who have disabilities or chronic care needs. Services may be provided in a person’s home, in the community, or in residential facilities (ex. in nursing homes, or assisted living facilities).

The challenge of remaining independent in your own home when faced with a disability or the effects of aging can be overwhelming. Supportive services such as home delivered meals, bathing assistance, transportation, day care, etc. can help.
