State of Washington Study
The State of Washington’s Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP), implemented TCARE® in 2009. The Department of Social and Health Services Research and Data Analysis Division recently released a study showing that individuals whose caregivers received a screening were less likely to enroll in Medicaid Long Term Care Services (LTC) or were able to delay their enrollment by twelve months or more.
Two years into the implementation, FCSP received a $3.45M increase to expand the program. This expansion enabled the study to reach a higher number of caregivers with a wider range of caregiver burdens. Tailored Care worked with FCSP’s own software on a customized protocol to align with the State’s existing programs.
