The Future of Long-Term Care

ISSUE 4

MARCH 21, 2017

 

Take federal action to strengthen the
direct care workforce.

 

BY Robert Espinoza

 

A federal investment in the direct care workforce would promote better wages and benefits, enhance training, and create advanced roles. It would also regularly collect data on the workforce, expand access to services and supports, and thread the contributions of family caregivers with those of paid caregivers, ultimately creating a vibrant system of care. In response, PHI has released a new federal policy report that details recommendations across these issues. This report speaks to a new presidential administration and a new Congress about the needs of direct care workers—and the millions of older people and people with disabilities they serve.
