PHS policies - Implementation and monitoring guide

Long-term care (LTC): as defined by the OECD brings together a range of services for people who are dependent on help with basic daily living activities over an extended period of time. Such activities include bathing, dressing, eating, getting in and out of bed or a chair, moving around and using the bathroom. These long-term care needs are the result of long-standing chronic conditions that lead to physical or mental disability.
