Long-term care (LTC) is a variety of services which help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of people with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods of time.
There are several categories of long-term care services to consider. Typically, these services need to be tailored to suit each individual’s unique needs and level of support. There is no one-size-fits-all solution – instead, a combination of care services are often put together after a thorough assessment of an individual’s needs.
Here are the principal types of long-term care services:
I. Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
These include support for the most basic daily living chores, typically for those with mobility restrictions or are in later stages of life.
Example: Feeding, grooming, continence issues, etc.
II. Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL)
The provision of assistance for higher-functioning activities that add further enrichment to one’s daily living.
Example: Managing finances, shopping, using telephones and devices, home maintenance, etc.
III. Elder Care services
This involves the facilitation of one’s healthcare and physical upkeep.
Example: Health and mental health check-ups, physical exercise, management of medication, etc.
IV. Specialised Care Services
Tailored services to manage special conditions and disabilities that commonly affect the individual, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Down Syndrome, Autism, learning disabilities and so on.
