Home Care Challenges

Texas’s home care and hospice frontline health care workers provide medically necessary services to Texas’ most vulnerable individuals with disabilities and significant illnesses. Home care agencies are facing extraordinary challenges that impact their ability to provide quality, affordable in-home services for their patients.

 

Following the pandemic and its effects on the workforce and our economy, the industry is fighting an unprecedented crisis. Due to workforce shortages, chronically low funding that is outpaced by rising health care costs and inflation, and regulatory hurdles that delay industry innovation, home care providers in Texas can no longer overcome the challenges they face on a daily basis.

 

Without action from our leaders, the home care industry and the half million Texas families we serve will be left without the care they rely on, driving up costs and leaving vulnerable patients at risk.
