Long-Term Care

Long-term medical care for a debilitating but non-life threatening condition. For example, one may require long-term care if one is involved in a car accident or has a non-terminal disease that does not allow him/her to live independently. Long-term care often involves the inability to perform at least some of the activities of daily living. One may purchase long-term care insurance to pay for some of the expenses associated with long-term care.
