Many adults care for aging parents, support their own children & face their own retirement. Seniors are an increasing proportion of society; economic benefits are shrinking; costs are rising. House neglect & 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 & most appropriate.
