Extended Care

What is extended care?

Almost 70% of people turning 65 will need extended care (long-term care) at some point in their lives. Make sure your loved ones are receiving the excellent extended care they deserve, by choosing UMC for their care.

Extended care is a range of services and support you or your loved one may need in order to meet personal-care needs. Most long-term care is not medical care, rather it is assistance with the basic personal tasks of everyday life such as:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Using the toilet
  • Eating

Other common extended care services are assistance with daily tasks such as:

  • Housework
  • Managing money
  • Taking medication
  • Shopping for groceries or clothes
  • Using the telephone or other communication devices
  • Caring for pets
