- Home and community-based services
SDAHO had four staff members in attendance at the June 12th meeting, each with an active role in bringing education to the workgroups and sharing innovation ideas on how we can maintain a sense of community, support the workforce and improve long term care services in South Dakota.
Tammy Hatting, SDAHO’s COO and state executive for LeadingAge is a member of the innovation workgroup, led by Senator Sydney Davis (R) of Vermillion. Hatting complimented the legislature for approving this summer study also sharing with committee members, that after 3 years of going through the pandemic and trying to keep their head above water, our long-term care administrators and home health/hospice providers have weathered the storm and help is on the way. “I want our post-acute care members to know that while we appreciate the increase in funding over the last 4 years, SDAHO will not stop advocating for innovative approaches and solutions to help providers with sustainability of their services and it is exciting to see members of our legislature share that same interest.”
