Professional Care at Home or in a Nursing Home
TennCare CHOICES in Long-Term Care is TennCare's program for long-term care services. These are also called long-term services and supports (LTSS). They include help doing everyday activities that you may no longer be able to do for yourself as you grow older, or if you have a disability—things like bathing, dressing, getting around your home, preparing meals, or doing household chores.
LTSS also includes care in a nursing home, in your home, or in the community that may keep you from having to go to a nursing home for as long as possible. These are called Home- and Community-Based Services or HCBS.
