The Eldercare Workforce Alliance has published a toolkit for advocates of older adults who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, entitled Quality Care through a Quality Workforce. The Alliance believes that we can provide high quality, coordinated, person and family-centered health care and LTSS to older adults who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, while helping to control costs. We believe central to providing that quality care is a well-trained and supported workforce. But we can’t accomplish this unless individuals and organizations across the country get involved and speak up.
