What is the state of long-term care in Wisconsin? On this program, Karen Musser and Carrie Gartzke describe Family Care, the Partnership Program, and Medicaid SSI – the three public programs Care Wisconsin currently offers in certain Wisconsin counties. What impact will the Wisconsin budget have on these long-term care services? What is self-directed care, and how will self-directed care be retained in the new budget guidelines?
Care Wisconsin began as a human services agency in 1976. They manage the long-term care needs of frail seniors and adults with disabilities who meet income, functional, and residency requirements. Their care model is based on access, choice, quality and cost-effectiveness. For more information, go to carewisc.org.
