Slide notes:There are various options for long-term care. The simplest is for people to receive help with activities of daily living and housework in their own homes, perhaps from family, friends, or volunteers. Some communities offer free or low-cost services such as health aides, personal care aides, medical equipment, home modifications, and respite care. Respite care refers to a brief period of assistance so that family caregivers can take a break. Individuals with health issues need home nursing care from a licensed health care worker, which means a registered nurse, a licensed practical nurse, or a licensed therapist. Medicare pays for this care in certain cases. 10
