Extended Care Career Ladder Initiative (ECCLI) Round II: Evaluation Report
August 1, 2002
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts initiated the Extended Care Career Ladders Initiative (ECCLI) as part of a broader Nursing Home Quality Initiative, adopted by the Massachusetts Legislature in 2000. Both acts were a response to high turnover and vacancies among paraprofessionals in long-term care. Basic to these initiatives is the equation of good care for consumers with good jobs and opportunities for frontline caregivers. This working paper is an 18-month evaluation of ECCLI Round II.
