Long-Term Care Plan Options

Now more than ever, people want the ability to receive the care they need in the safety and comfort of their own home.

If you or someone you love is living with a chronic condition and requires long-term care (LTC) services at home, Elderplan can help. We offer health plans designed for people who require assistance with activities such as bathing, dressing and preparing meals. We provide the care you need to remain safely in the comfortable surroundings of your home… without any cost to you.

Perhaps one of the biggest perks of being enrolled in our long-term care plans is that you are assigned a dedicated Care Manager who leads a team of caring clinical professionals, all committed to helping you stay healthy. Your Care Manager will stay in touch with your doctors, helping arrange your medical visits as well as transportation to get you there. They will be your go-to person and will work to help ensure you get the care you need to remain safely at home.
