Long-term care consultation for people under age 65

Program info

Long-Term Care Consultation (LTCC) services help you make decisions about long-term care services and supports that reflect your needs and preferences. LTCC includes an assessment and service planning process completed before people under the age of 65 enter a nursing facility.



LTCC services are available to you if you have long-term or chronic care needs. You must have a long-term care consultation if you might need to go into a certified nursing facility, hospital swing bed or certified boarding care facility. LTCC services are available whether or not you are eligible for Minnesota Health Care Programs.



LTCC services help you become aware of supports and services in the community so you and your family may make an informed choice about where you want to live. You may receive information about local long-term care services and support options. You may discuss your wants and needs during a face-to-face visit with a social worker or nurse. After your visit, you will receive a plan with recommendations about service options that could meet your current needs.

If you would like to move to the community from an institution, you may be eligible for relocation service coordination.
