I’ve Fallen And I Can’t Get Up: Long Term Care

Happy New Year Dolls!

I hope that your year has started off with plenty of blessings. I declare that everyone will have a year of success, love and prosperity.

Since this is a new year and there has been a lot in the news about Long Term Care, I thought it would be great to discuss.  This will be a 6 part series: what it is, what it does, where you can have long term care, the best time to apply for it, what resources are available.

Long Term Care – What is it

Long Term Care is when a person can no longer perform 2 of the 6 daily living functions by themselves.  These functions are:

1. Toileting -Going to the bathroom by yourself (wiping, getting on and off of the toilet)

2.  Continence -Being able to hold your bowels

3. Feeding yourself

4. Dressing yourself

5. Bathing yourself

6. Transferring -Moving from place to place by yourself

Recognizing the signs of a Long Term Care situation can help you identify it for yourself or a loved one.
