Long Term Care

Long Term Care

The Long-Term Care (LTC) program offered by Clark County Social Service (CCSS) is dedicated to assisting Clark County residents who, due to medical issues, are unable to live independently. Eligibility for long-term care is determined through a comprehensive assessment of need, considering pre-established eligibility criteria.

In our commitment to thorough assistance, we explore all available resource programs for the payment of long-term care before considering support from Clark County Social Service. For further details about the Long-Term Care program, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office at (702) 455-4270 or via email at AdultCareServices@ClarkCountyNV.Gov. We are here to provide information and support to ensure appropriate long-term care for those in need within our community.

The types of licensed facilities contracted by Clark County Social Service to provide care are:

  • Adult Day Health Care Facilities: provides organized day programs of therapeutic, health, and social activities and services for chronically ill, elderly, or disabled adults.
  • Adult Group Care and Assisted Living Facilities: residential care facilities that are ideal for persons who, because of age or disability, would not be able to provide for their own household needs. Additionally, may need someone in attendance in case of emergencies.
  • Nursing Homes:
    • Free Standing Intermediate Care Facility: provides custodial care and supervision under the direction of a professional registered nurse. This includes a strong emphasis on social and rehabilitative services with the goal of assisting individuals to become involved in managing their health-related needs.
    • Skilled Nursing Facility: provides 24-hour nursing care under the supervision of a professional registered nurse. In skilled nursing facilities, patients may receive either skilled nursing care services which meet the Medicare criteria or full custodial care services for patients whose care needs do not fall within those guidelines.


  • A completed long term care application, or an existing open case with Clark County Social Service.
  • A medical need for long term care.
  • Meet the level of care criteria appropriate for the type of care requested.
  • Meet income and resource eligibility criteria as determined by type of care requested and as outlined in the Social Service Policy Manual.

Financial Guidelines

A patient liability (the amount the patients are to pay from their income towards their care) is established from the patient's available income.  All other programs available to assist with payments of long-term care are pursued prior to CCSS authorizing long term care payment, including eligibility for Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance or self-pay.

How to Apply

Requests for LTC services are received from the community, family members, long term care facilities, hospitals and other agencies that have knowledge of potential long term care cases, or clients applying on their own behalf.
