Assisted Living Services would like to share with you information from the CT chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Please read the letter below. At the bottom is a link to submit a letter in opposition of this funding change, please complete it at your own discretion.
Dear Alzheimer’s Advocates,
Yesterday, Governor Malloy announced additional budget reductions of $78.785 million. The Governor’s cuts are in response to the recently announced projected budget deficit of $266 million in the current fiscal year that ends on June 30, 2016.
Once again, the State Department on Aging and Programs for Senior Citizens, which includes the Statewide Respite Care Program, were included in the rescission. Please see below.
The Governor will be meeting with legislative leaders from both parties to agree on a plan to enact the entire package of cuts. It is anticipated that the cuts will become effective on April 1, 2016. Please click on the link below and ask your legislators to oppose these harmful cuts that will negatively impact individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their unpaid caregivers.
