Providing necessary care to those we serve covers a wide range of services that is dependent on an individual’s needs. To ensure transparency while fostering consumer engagement, the Centers of Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) established a set of formal rulings that impact consumers and staff who deliver care spanning from community life through long term care, and everything in between. These mandated rules require providers to evaluate their current practices and pursue new creative solutions to meet the criteria. With the increasing demands being placed on this industry, and continuing workforce constraints, how do consumers and providers manage a human services system that begins to place more emphasis on community, choice, and transparency? Join us at the conference as we explore and offer new perspectives and innovative solutions related to compliance, policy, workforce challenges and trends as we begin discussions about what’s next for the aging and disability services system.
(Not yet a SWPPA member? Join here!)
The Conference will be facilitated with a number of safety precautions. Please contact Ann Conlin with any questions [email protected] or (412) – 467-6564

Generations of Caring, Who’s Next?
In an environment where every segment of the healthcare continuum is struggling with ongoing workforce challenges, the necessity for families, friends and others to become informal caregivers continues to grow. Who of us isn’t at various times, maybe even most times, caring for someone else? When one of the most viable, realistic solutions to the ongoing healthcare workforce challenge is to lean more heavily on informal caregivers, what is the impact on families, those who need care, our communities and our health care system overall? How long and at what cost can we continue to count on this informal system? And what happens when, or if, this system is not enough? We’ll explore the realities of informal caregiving and what this may look like in the future as informal caregiving continues to evolve.
