For older adults who may experience significant disability from injury or disease, the daily activities present challenges that may require ongoing assistance from family members, friends, or a formal care service provider. Longterm services and supports enable those who need continual help because of physical, cognitive, or developmental disabilities to accomplish the necessary tasks of daily living.
