Our nursing home residents are our Stars. They deserve our respect, thanks and compassion. But it's gotten to the point where seniors cannot get some of the critical, life sustaining medical services they need, such as vision, dental and podiatry services, because of severe budget cuts and restrictions.
Try to image what it would be like without some of the basic services most people take for granted, but which is often denied or restricted for many of our nursing home residents on Medicaid. We just can't stand by while access to medical care is curtained in the name of cutting costs.
Follow along as we make several stops around the state, encouraging the Governor and legislators to "be a star" for nursing home residents and restore needed medical services.
