PA Long-Term Care Commission Public Meeting Dates and Locations

Posted · Add Comment

The Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Commission is working on recommendations on how to improve the long-term care system in Pennsylvania. 

The commission has until Dec. 31, 2014 to submit a plan to the governor that will set priorities and guidelines to improve the current long-term care system. As part of the development of that plan, the commission is seeking public input.

The commission is accepting written comments from the public through June 27, 2014. In addition, it is holding public meetings across the state where attendees will be permitted to provide verbal comments and feedback on the state of long-term care. 

The initial public meeting was held in Harrisburg last Friday, April 11. Additional public meetings have been set for the times and locations listed below.

For more information on the Commission see my recent post here, or visit its webpage here or call 717-425-5719 or 1-800-654-5984 (TDD users).
