Family Care and Family Care Partnership

Family Care and Family Care Partnership

In the mid-1990s, a broad consensus developed on the need to redesign Wisconsin's long-term care system, prompted by concerns with the cost and complexity of the long-term care system, inequities in availability, and by projections of an aging population's growing demand for long-term care. Over the next few years, consumers, advocates, providers, state and local officials, and others collaborated to design a new approach to the provision of long-term care in Wisconsin. This new approach, named "Family Care," was designed to provide cost-effective, comprehensive and flexible long-term care that will foster consumers' independence and quality of life, while recognizing the need for interdependence and support. Family Care was partially based on experience in developing the Wisconsin Partnership Program, which integrates all health and long-term care services into one inclusive benefit.
