The proposed state budget freezes for two years all major long term care programs except nursing homes, which are more expensive than in-home care. This includes Family Care, IRIS, Partnership, PACE, and the Children’s Waivers.  Older adults, and children and adults with disabilities will go without essential services unless this cap is lifted. The cap will not save money because it will lead to an increased use of expensive and preventable institutional care.  Lifting the cap on community services means people with disabilities and older adults can stay in their homes and maintain their independence.

We, the undersigned, ask state legislators to lift the cap on community long term care services because they are more cost effective than institutions and better for people.  Keep the community promise: remember - there’s no place like home!
