Long-term Care Services
Helping consumers access home- and community-based care
With a rapidly growing senior population, states must meet the increasing demand for home- and community-based services (HCBS) and manage the shift away from institutional care. Improved funding for long-term care (LTC) and favorable provisions under health care reform allow states to enhance the efficiency and increase the quality of their existing LTC programs.
A Comprehensive Approach to Meet Increased Demand
Consumers have a strong desire to receive care in a home- or community-based setting. To meet the needs of these consumers, states require a wide range of LTC support services to assist consumers, family members and caregivers. As the demand for these services grows, now is the time for states to reassess the models they use to determine eligibility, deliver services and facilitate communication among all stakeholders.

Our years of helping make state health programs more effective allows us to offer solutions that promote community living through a combination of health services, LTC services, employment services and community support organizations.
