August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Immunization helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get their shots—just like kids do.
National Immunization Awareness Month is a great time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to stay up to date on their immunizations.
Monthly Q & A
How Long Is Long Term Care?
What is long term care, and how long is it needed?
Long term care refers to a variety of in-home services and supports designed to help someone with personal care needs, like eating, bathing, dressing, walking and toileting. It is predominately not medical care—and it can take place over a short or long period of time. The goal of these services and supports is to help you live as independently as possible when you need help doing some everyday activities. The term you will often hear now is “long term services and supports” (LTSS).
