    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, March 25, 2010, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on the state’s long-term care system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission will review the spectrum of long-term care, including in-home supportive services, home and community-based care, adult day health care and assisted-living and nursing facilities. At this hearing, the Commission will learn about the state’s long-term care services and the challenges to improving care services in California.

    The Commission will hear from a panel from The SCAN Foundation who will provide an overview of the major components of California’s long-term care system. The Commission also will hear about recommendations to improve access to care and opportunities to improve the state’s existing programs from the principal of Hendrickson Development and co-author of Home and Community-Based Long-Term Care: Recommendations to Improve Access for Californians. The director of the California Department of Aging will discuss the services available through the department and the role of the department within the state’s network of care. Finally, the assistant secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency will provide an overview of the agency’s current efforts to improve long-term care in California.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in room 125 of the State Capitol.
