Can you help tell the Obama administration to meet with ADAPT and hear our demands?
Right now we need YOU to contact the White House at http://bit.ly/aX7aab! The action is nationwide, help us get the President's attention. YOU can make it happen!
Why is giving people the right to live in their own homes and communities so difficult? Why will the federal government pay for people to live in a nursing home but not in the community when the aggregate costs are less? Sane policy in this arena is not rocket science.
Have you ever heard anyone say "I can't wait until I age enough to live in a nursing home?" No one chooses such a horrid, constricted life if they can live in the community with services and supports.
It is past time for politicians to say no to all those dollars from the nursing homes and end the institutional bias.
