Long-Term Care

If your loved one has complex support needs, you might be looking into long-term care (LTC). Long-term care is an essential aspect of seniors’ care, which is why we want to help you understand what long-term care means and the impact it has.

Long-term care encompasses a range of health and personal care services primarily provided to seniors who require assistance with the activities of daily living and medical care beyond what can be provided at home or in assisted living facilities. Long-term care senior homes, like Shaughnessy Seniors Community in Port Coquitlam, play a vital role in meeting the needs of seniors who require ongoing support and assistance. These facilities offer a supportive, home-like environment where residents can receive round-the-clock care from skilled professionals and feel more comfortable as they age.
