The Wisconsin Council on Long Term Care was first created through the 1999
Wisconsin Act 9 with the responsibility to report annually to the legislature
and to the Governor on the status of Family Care. Family Care was a new pilot
approach to redesigning the long term care system in Wisconsin for frail elders
and adults with developmental or physical disabilities. In addition, the Council
was to assist the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services in
developing broad policy issues related to long term care services. Wisconsin Act
9 sunset the Council as a legislative council as of July 21, 2001 or on the day
after publication of the 2001-03 Biennial Budget.
On September 10, 2001, Secretary Phyllis Dubé, of the Wisconsin Department
of Health and Family Services, reappointed all 15 members of the Wisconsin
Council on Long Term Care, as an advisory group for the Department on the
emerging issues in long term care. She expanded the membership to 17 through the
addition of two additional members to represent the interests of children with
long term care needs and individuals with mental health concerns.
