National Commission for Quality Long-Term Care Recommendations

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Council on Aging (NCOA) commends the National Commission for Quality Long-Term Care for its efforts to raise long-term care as an issue among policymakers, especially this year's Presidential candidates. We urge Presidential candidates and members of Congress to seriously consider the long-term care challenges our nation faces and to work to propose effective solutions.

The commission report "From Isolation to Integration: Recommendations to Improve Quality in Long-term Care" contains recommendations to improve what it calls a "severely strained" long-term care delivery system." It addresses quality, workforce, technology and financial issues surrounding long-term care in America.

The commission also released survey results today that found that 94% of voters recognize the need to reform the long-term care system is important and that 74% feel that it is very important. These results prove that long-term care is at the forefront of many voters' minds.

The recommendations offered today by the co-chairs, former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA), will go a long way to highlight the long-term care issue and provide a starting point for discussions the are long overdue.

NCOA's Chair-Elect Msgr.Charles Fahey, professor emeritus at Fordham University, also serves on the twenty-two member commission.

The National Council on Aging's mission is to improve the lives of older Americans. NCOA programs help older people remain healthy and independent, access benefits programs find jobs and discover meaningful ways to continue contributing to society. A non-profit organization with a national network of more than 14,000 organizations and leaders, NCOA was founded in 1950 and is based in Washington, DC.
