WHCOA [Policy Brief]: Long-Term Services and Supports

Conference on aging
April 24, 2014
Long-Term Services and Supports Policy Brief
Today, the White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) released a policy brief on Long-Term Services and Supports, a key focus area of the upcoming 2015 Conference.
The long-term services and supports policy brief reviews five topic areas important to the aging community: informal caregiving; formal services and supports; direct care workers; access to information and services; and financing long-term services and supports. This is the second in a series of briefs to be released by the White House Conference on Aging; a brief on Healthy Aging was released on April 10. Additional briefs on retirement security and elder justice will be released in the coming weeks. If you haven’t yet joined our mailing list, please sign up, and we’ll notify you about future briefs, upcoming events, and other topics of interest.
The briefs define and frame each issue area and reflect the most current evidence-based information on the issues. Each brief concludes with a series of discussion questions, and we’d encourage you to comment and share your feedback at policy@whaging.gov. The White House Conference on Aging will collect the responses and use them to help shape our ongoing work for the 2015 national Conference. Your comments will also be displayed in a new public conversation area of our website. We look forward to hearing from you.
