Of course, both long term care and home care can be provided to individuals of all ages, including younger people who are differently abled. As technology has brought about many changes over the past fifty or so years in the way we care for our seniors, long term care has been separated from home healthcare and is currently used to refer to only non-medical services provided by a caregiver.
