The Department of Labor (DOL) has issued a new regulation governing home care services for people with disabilities and seniors. This new rule may impact some of your state’s long-term care programs, particularly “consumer-directed” programs where the person receiving services can hire his or her own worker (oftentimes family or close friends) and can direct the care provided by the worker.


Consumers and advocates must be knowledgeable about this rule and advocate to ensure your state implements this rule in a way that helps consumers and the important workers who provide services to them and does not cause unintended harms, such as cuts to services, dismantling of programs that allow consumers to control their own care, or further limiting this critical workforce.
