Long term care is often required as a result of age, severe injury, or when a person’s condition means it’s no longer practical for them to live independently. It assists with the performance of daily activities such as dressing, bathing, cooking, and even moving around. Whether it be due to physical frailty, mental incapacity, or both, moving into a professional and fully equipped care facility is often the right choice to ensure the safest possible environment and best possible quality of life for your loved ones.
