With a growing population of seniors comes increased vulnerability to dependability; as a result there is a cause for research on long-term care. The purpose of this study is to clearly define and explain causation for long-term care and treatment including rehabilitation from the prospective of seniors receiving care as well as the caregivers. The majority of people utilizing long-term care are seniors. These seniors require care that includes but is not limited to the promotion of physical and mental health, nutrition, functioning, safety, social interactions, independence, and quality of life (Essential Competencies in the Care of Older Adults, 2014). Rehabilitation occurs when one of these is disrupted or obstructed.
