Long-Term Care Services (LTC) refers to the wide range of in-home, community-based, and institutional services and programs that are designed to help the elderly and individuals with disabilities of all ages. These services can be medical and non-medical and can help people with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as dressing, bathing and using the bathroom, and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as food shopping and preparing meals.
HRA provides access to, or authorizes services for, a variety of long-term care services through MICSA program areas. Access to additional services is available through the New York State Department of Health, the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) and the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD).
