Elderly Care

I believe small, community-based care centers offer the possibility of better living situations at lower cost. You may have heard others suggest the need to expand home health care for seniors.  I know that field well: as chairman of the legislative Human Services committee, I wrote and sponsored the original pre-admission screening program aimed at providing assistance to keep seniors in their homes and improve their quality of life, while saving taxpayers money. Government spending is not the final measure of the care our seniors receive.
