AARP Releases State Scorecard on Long-Term Services and Supports

AARP has a new state scorecard providing critical information on long term services and supports. This State Long-Term Services and Supports Scorecard is the first of its kind: a multidimensional approach to measure state-level performance of long-term services and supports (LTSS) systems that provide assistance to older people and adults with disabilities. The Scorecard is a tool to help states improve their LTSS systems. The key findings illustrate areas in which there is a large range in state performance and examples of how public policy action can lead to improvement.  We must move to become a nation in which older people and those with disabilities are given meaningful choices, have access to affordable, coordinated services, a high quality of life and care, and support for their family caregivers regardless of the state they live in. You can find the scorecard here.
