Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Council Announces Blueprint for Strengthening Pennsylvania’s Direct Care Workforce

Harrisburg, PA – Today, the Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Council (LTCC) released its Blueprint for Strengthening Pennsylvania’s Direct Care Workforce – a culmination of more than a year of work by the council and its committees to propose how to best address the commonwealth’s escalating direct care workforce crisis. The LTCC is a 35-member body charged with making recommendations on regulations, licensure, financing, or any other responsibilities of the departments and agencies that relate to Pennsylvania’s long-term services and supports system (LTSS).

“Now is the time to take action on addressing Pennsylvania’s growing need for direct care workers,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I believe that many of the blueprint’s recommendations and strategies can be achieved through Restore Pennsylvania and my proposal to increase the minimum wage.”
