Long-Term Services & Supports, Long-Term Care

ASPE conducts research, analysis, and evaluation of policies related to the long-term care and personal assistance needs of people of all ages with chronic disabilities. ASPE’s work also highlights the financing, delivery, organization, and quality of long-term services and supports, including those supported or financed by private insurers, Medicaid, Medicare, and the Administration for Community Living (ACL). This includes assessing the interaction between health care, post-acute care, chronic care, long-term care, and supportive services needs of persons with disabilities across the age spectrum; determining service use and program participation patterns; and coordinating the development of long-term care data and policies that affect the characteristics, circumstances, and needs of people with long-term care needs, including older adults and people with disabilities.

More than one-half of older adults, regardless of their lifetime earnings, are projected to experience serious LTSS needs and use some paid LTSS after turning 65. 

Older adults with limited lifetime earnings are more likely to develop serious LTSS needs than those with more earnings. 

However, fifty-six percent of older adults in the top lifetime earnings quintile receive some paid LTSS, and the likelihood of nursing home care does not vary much by lifetime earnings. Learn more.
