History of LTC Redesign


Family Care History: Formal Goal and Vision for LTC Redesign

The Department of Health and Family Services will foster the statewide development of comprehensive long term care and support systems that maximize independence, recovery and quality of life, while recognizing the need for interdependence and support. The redesigned system will provide individuals and families with meaningful choices of supports, services, providers, and residential settings, as long as such care or support is necessary, meets an adequate level of quality, is cost-effective, is consistent with the individual’s values and preferences, and can be provided within available resources.
