Most Long Term Care Is Provided At Home

People often need long term care when they have a serious, ongoing health condition or disability. The need for long term care can arise suddenly, such as after a heart attack or stroke. However it most often develops gradually, as people get older and frailer or as an illness or disability gets worse.

It is difficult to predict how much or what type of long term care a person might need. Several issues increase the risk:

  • Age: The risk generally increases as people get older.
  • Gender: Women are at higher risk than men, primarily because they often live longer.
  • Marital status: Single people are more likely than married people to need care from a paid provider.
  • Lifestyle: Poor diet and exercise habits can increase a person’s risk.
  • Health and family history: These factors also affect risk.
