The majority of people will need assistance with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing and meal preparation, at some point in their lives, whether due to aging, injury, illness or disability. Knowing what types of services are needed, available and how to obtain them is not easy. Whether you need help now or are exploring future options for yourself or a loved one, services and supports available through the Pennsylvania Office of Long-Term Living can assist you.
The goal of this Web site is to provide you easy access to information about the services and supports available, across Pennsylvania, through the Office of Long-Term Living. Helpful information is available for those who provide care and for people interested in planning for future needs.

Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Commission
The Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Commission (LTCC) is part of Governor Tom Corbett’s Healthy Pennsylvania plan to ensure access to quality, affordable health care. The commission will focus on improving the current long-term care system, including identifying effective ways to provide better coordinated methods of administering long-term care programs and services and ensuring quality health care for older Pennsylvanians and individuals with disabilities.

Abuse, Neglect, Abandonment and Financial Exploitation (*Webinar Slides*)
Ensuring the health and safety of program participants is one of the waiver assurances required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Additionally, state laws are in place requiring service coordinators and direct service providers to report abuse, neglect, abandonment and financial exploitation. Two webinars were held by OLTL in September 2013 to review these state laws and the reporting requirements now in place.
