Long-Term Services and Supports

Navigating the Future of Care for Older Adults

How can we provide high-quality care for a growing population of older Americans and people with disabilities? In addition to concerns over increased demand, affordability, caregiver workforce shortages, fragmented services, and a lack of care coordination pose significant challenges. Furthermore, the critical considerations of human dignity and choice emphasize the need to make the residential long-term care sector more person-centered and expand home and community-based services (HCBS) to enable more Americans to age in place.

Altarum offers deep expertise in addressing long-term services and supports (LTSS) challenges. Working with partners around the country, we’re developing tools to help states address direct care workforce shortage and leveraging quality improvement initiatives and hands-on trainings to transform nursing home culture.
