Long-term services and supports (LTSS) refers to a range of services and supports that help you perform everyday activities. LTSS can be provided in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or other setting, and may include medical care, therapy, 24-hour care, personal care, and custodial care (homemaker services). Medicare usually does not cover long-term services and supports. See also: Long-Term Care Insurance.
