Economic Impact Study

The Perryman Group recently completed a study titled "The Impact of Maintaining a Viable Home Care and Hospice System on Business Activity in Texas." 

WHO WE ARE

We are an association of more than 1,200 licensed Home and Community Support Services Agencies across the state of Texas. The Texas Association for Home Care and Hospice (TAHC&H) is committed to protecting the right of individuals, particularly those with chronic illness or disability, to receive reliable, quality health care in the comfort of their own home.

Visit the TAHC&H website to find a licensed homecare provider. Texas only. 

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.
