Long-term care

General information

A person is considered to be in need of long-term care if they regularly require assistance from another person in order to carry out basic day-to-day tasks owing to illness or a physical, psychological or mental disability.

Basic day-to-day tasks are:

  1. personal hygiene: care and assistance aiming to maintain the cleanliness of the body;
  2. body excretions: care and assistance aiming the disposal of metabolic waste;
  3. nutrition: care and assistance aiming to assist with food intake, hydration and enteral feeding;
  4. clothing: care and assistance to get dressed and undressed;
  5. mobility: care and assistance aiming changes of position, locomotion and access to and exit from home.

The insured person must, in theory, require assistance with basic day-to-day tasks for at least three and a half hours a week, and the need for nursing care must be likely to last at least six months or be irreversible.
