Tell your legislator: save home care!
We need your help to save seniors in Illinois.
More than 80,000 senior citizens throughout Illinois depend on a home care provider to help them live independently. Home care providers support seniors with critical assistance, cooking meals, cleaning laundry, and administering to important medical needs. Without this help, 80,000 seniors could lose their independence and be forced into costly long-term institutional care.
Illinois lawmakers short-changed the program that funds home care for seniors. If lawmakers don’t act quickly to pass an emergency funding bill for home care, the program will run out of money by early March, putting the fate of 80,000 seniors in jeopardy.
Contact your legislator today and tell them- we need to save seniors.
