THE GOVERNOR’S PROPOSED BUDGET PLACES A CAP ON ELDERS RECEIVING HOME CARE SERVICES AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO NURSING HOME PLACEMENT
We Need Your Advocacy!
Call your Connecticut legislators and ask them to reject the Governor’s cap on State-funded (Level Two) enrollment of the CT Home Care Program. Spending down to $1,600 before receiving Medicaid home care services puts our parents, grandparents and loved ones in jeopardy and often results in nursing home placement. When savings run out, the State will pay for a client’s nursing home expense at a rate 4x more expensive than the average home care plan. Call your legislators today and tell them seniors want to remain in the community while saving Connecticut tax dollars!
New Transportation Resource Guide Available
Transportation is a challenge for many residents of northwestern Connecticut – especially older adults, people with disabilities and others who rely on public transit. Western CT Area Agency on Aging (WCAAA) and Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF) are pleased to release the newly updated “Transportation Resource Guide for Northwestern Connecticut.” We hope that this directory will assist community residents to get the rides they need and want.
