Where is Long-Term Care Provided?

The need for long-term care does not mean being confined to a nursing home. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 80% of long-term care is provided at home.1

You can receive long-term care in a variety of settings, including:

  • Adult day care centers
  • Assisted living facilities2
  • Nursing homes
  • Hospice facilities
  • Your home
