Long-term Care

Vincentian Specializes in Long-term Care in Pittsburgh

Long-term Care refers to a continuum of medical and social services designed to support the needs of people living with chronic health problems that affect their ability to perform everyday activities. Long-term care services include traditional medical services, social services, and housing.

A candidate for long-term care is someone that can no longer care for their own personal needs such as eating, bathing, using the toilet, transferring to bed or chair, caring for incontinence, managing money, or responding to emergencies. They may also have extensive medical needs requiring daily attention.
