Assisted Living Facilities should have allways been included in community based care provider.Its a tremnedous service for those in need.This will also help the state in covering the cost for the poor and disabled in need of assisted living.The current rate of $37.80 per does not cover the cost.This will open the opportunity to help offset an increase rate by allowing the federal government to participate and pay 50%.
This will also ensure the propre care is available rather than putting residents in a much more costly services while still maintaining dignity and respect and independance for the resident.
I hope you take my response sincerely.
I care for all my fellow man regardless of race,rich ,poor or religion.I hope you cando the same by allowing and supporting this bill to pass.

I mis-interpreted.Assisted living is not included as a servicee for community based waiver service.It should be.We could save the State a tremendous amount of money if we were.It seem so as everyone wants assisted living for the poor to go out of business,by the continued non support to increase the rate from $37.80 per day.A housekeeper from home health gets this in 3 hours.as JLARC study indicated .
