...is an ongoing movement led by LeadingAge PA that strives to keep care recipients at the center of the aging services ecosystem in Pennsylvania.
Launched in spring 2023, LTSS Evolve aims to identify and address antiquated, redundant, and overly burdensome long-term services and supports (LTSS) rules, regulations, policies, and guidances by engaging policymakers at the state level.
These outdated requirements often result in unnecessary costs and impede the provision of true quality care by taking away valuable time and resources that could be better spent serving residents or participants.
Centered around direct input from mission-driven providers and residents across the aging services ecosystem, LTSS Evolve PA is the driving force behind LeadingAge PA's advocacy efforts to find modern regulatory and legislative solutions to problematic state provisions.
LeadingAge PA will be a leading force in modernizing, organizing, and energizing the aging services ecosystem. Our vision for LTSS Evolve is to lay a new foundation for long-term care and senior services in Pennsylvania -- one which allows providers to play an active role in evolving how they care for older adults, with the goal of spending more time directly engaging with care recipients and being valued in their local communities and across the Commonwealth.
