This report presents findings from a survey of Michigan provider organizations delivering long-term supports and services (LTSS) to participants in the Medicaid-funded Home Help program. These organizations are primarily home health or private-duty home care agencies. Data collected includes: type of services provided by surveyed organizations; workforce volume; workforce stability; workforce compensation; and training needs and interests.
Recruiting and retaining staff is challenging for many organizations.
Training requirements for direct care workers should be expanded.
This survey provides baseline data to inform state goals, programs, and priorities.
