Could it be that after decades of steadfast battle to be heard, Steve Moses, President of the Center for Long-Term Care Reform, is finally being listened to and sought after? Glory be!
I guess the timing is finally right. Governments on state and national levels realize how rapidly time is running out before the predominantly government-paid system of long-term care (LTC) we’ve complacently become accustomed to, implodes.
The Center for Long-Term Care Reform, which Steve runs, has been recently commissioned by GA, VA and NJ to study and produce indexes that measure long-term care vulnerability. If people will stop, look, and digest the results, they are terrifying.
The great thing about the recently published GA and VA studies and the indexes of long-term care vulnerability they produced, is that legislators and policymakers (and anyone else interested) now have analytical tools that will help assess and quantify the future sustainability of their state’s long-term care service delivery and financing system.
Here’s a link to the GA Study: http://www.georgiapolicy.org/ftp_files/IndexofLong-TermCareVulnerability.pdf. The index of long-term care vulnerability is found on pages 27-28.
