Danbury, CT (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

In a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, the subject of long term care was highlighted as being a possible new discussion topic for Congress. According to the article, now that the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (CLASS Act) has been repealed, a new solution for long term care options is needed. With these new developments and no federal long term care support system in place, Connecticut Nursing Services, a home care agency serving Fairfield and Litchfield Counties, as well as parts of New Haven County, wants to encourage long term care planning long before it is needed.

Long term care is a general term used to describe various home and community-based services for adults who need help taking care of themselves. Research and discussions for how long term care will be administered should be done as early as possible. Planning ahead can erase many of the issues that arise when financing long term care becomes a priority.

Connecticut Nursing Services wants to stress the importance of becoming familiar with long term care options when considering long term care for a parent or loved one. The different types of long term care Connecticut Nursing Services highlights are: in-home care, adult day programs, independent living, assisted living, nursing home care, senior housing care, and continuing-care retirement communities.

Connecticut Nursing Services has over 20 years experience in at-home nursing, and their home caregivers tailor their support to individual needs. For more information about Connecticut Nursing Services and the care they provide, visit: http://www.ctnursingservices1.com/.
