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:
- Using the toilet
Other common extended care services are assistance with daily tasks such as:
- Managing money
- Taking medication
- Shopping for groceries or clothes
- Using the telephone or other communication devices
- Caring for pets
