Almost all of us will need some assistance with the tasks of everyday life at some point in our lives. This type of assistance is referred to as “long-term services and supports” or “long-term care.” This guide and accompanying fact sheets are designed for you (or your advocate), the individual who is currently receiving or who may in the future receive long-term services and supports - the purpose of these materials is to inform you about your options for long-term services and supports. Its goal is also to empower you - through education - to effectively advocate on your own behalf.

This guide and accompanying fact sheets are part of a project led by the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care, and funded by the Milbank Foundation for Rehabilitation, to empower people with disabilities and older adults to be self-advocates for quality long-term care, while strengthening long-term care citizen advocacy groups that work on behalf of long-term care consumers.
