"Many adults care for aging parents, support their own children and face their own retirement. Seniors are an increasing proportion of society, economic benefits are shrinking, costs are rising. House neglect and home injuries are primary causes of relocating to nursing homes. It doesn’t need to be an inevitable fact of aging to live out life in a nursing home. Current laws allow those who are otherwise eligible, to be given the choice of care setting that is the least restrictive and most appropriate."
