Eldercare Services in Connecticut Under Attack!

Ron D'Aquila Head ShotThere is legislation currently being proposed in Connecticut which would adversely effect the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders and current and future seniors needing assistance to live at home.  It is being proposed that the estimated 3,245 state funded elders will be required to pay 15% towards the monthly cost of their home care services.  Also, being proposed is that there will be a freeze on new admissions into the Program.
