Advancing Self-Direction in LTSS: Empowering Individuals and Mitigating the Direct Care Workforce Crisis
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern
Event Description
Self-direction is a model of LTSS delivery that empowers older adults and people with disabilities to decide for themselves how, when, and from whom they receive services and supports. Self-direction enrollment has increased by 23% since 2019, accelerated in part by the COVID-19 pandemic, and this expansion has played a part in alleviating direct care workforce shortages by offering the flexibility to hire family members or friends. However, policy and programmatic challenges, gaps, and myths around self-direction would need to be addressed by a range of stakeholders for continued growth.
