Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Council
The Pennsylvania Long-Term Care Council is charged with making recommendations on regulations, licensure, financing, or any other responsibilities of the departments and agencies that relate to the commonwealth’s long-term services and supports system. Established by Act 64 of 2015, the council replaces the Intra-Governmental Council on Long-Term Care in order
to reflect today’s broader long-term care continuum. The scope of the council
includes all areas of long-term care, including, but not limited to,
institutional care and home and community-based services. Chaired by Secretary
of Aging Teresa Osborne, the council is comprised of 35 members, including long-term
care consumers, advocates, caregivers, providers, and policymakers.
