Family Care – Partnership

Family Care Partnership Overview

If you live in certain Wisconsin counties, you may qualify for Family Care Partnership. With the Partnership program, you have a team of professionals who help manage your health and your long-term care services together. You decide what those services will look like and who will deliver them (and when and where). You choose from a full range of options that will help you live safely and comfortably in your home or community. See the complete list by clicking here
