A Sacramento-based think tank called the Little Hoover Commission is developing recommendations on how the state could improve long-term care services during a time of economic downturn.
Earlier this summer, the commission toured San Francisco’s On Lok Senior Health Services, which has implemented a long-term care model called the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE.
In a California Healthline Special Report by Pat McConahay, experts discussed strategies for improving California’s long-term care services.
The Special Report includes comments from:
- Stuart Drown, executive director of the Little Hoover Commission;
- Eileen Kunz, director for policy and government relations at On Lok PACE Partners;
- Stephen Moses, president of the Center for Long-Term Care Reform; and
- Gary Passmore, board member for the Congress of California Seniors.
The Little Hoover Commission is expected to release its long-term care recommendations in about one year (McConahay, California Healthline, 9/9).
