The Role of MQC3 and Home Help: Serving Michigan’s Long-Term Care Population

The State of Michigan has provided home care services to elderly residents and persons with disabilities for more than 25 years. The Home Help program has been a cost effective way for the state to provide care for those who cannot adequately care for themselves in their own homes. An important reason that the Home Help program is able to provide care to thousands is that those in need of care are able to find a qualified home care provider to deliver care. The purpose of this report is to describe the activities of the Michigan Quality Community Care Council (MQC3) and examine how the MQC3 supports the Home Help program in its endeavors to provide high-quality care at a low cost to the state for those unable to afford their own care.
