Please, dear friends and teachers...
What does "long-term" mean?
Similarly a long-term contract is obviously for a long time. A short term contract could be for a specific job of a few weeks or months. When the job is done, the contract is void.
"Long-term care" in a facility is for example in a nursing home. When a person cannot be in their own home any more because of either medical problems, or problems just of old age, they would be going into a long-term facility.
