White House Aging Conference Releases LTSS Policy Brief

May 14, 2015

The White House Conference on Aging released a policy brief (pdf) on April 24 examining the issue of long-term services and supports (LTSS).

LTSS is one of four core topics being examined at the upcoming Conference and related regional forums.

The policy brief describes the population of older Americans who use LTSS and the individuals who provide them with support, including family caregivers and direct-care workers. It also highlights actions taken by the Obama administration to improve direct-care job quality, such as the U.S. Department of Labor’s final regulation extending home care workers minimum wage and overtime protections and the Personal and Home Care Aide State Training demonstration program. 

WHCOA invites comments on this policy brief and other issues of concern through its website.
