This would do so much for seniors who just need that extra bit of support and who deserve that dignity. There could be excellent things that go on there, outcomes beneficial not just to seniors but to the community and nation at large." Thank you, Tom

It's so important for Seniors to stay active and keep moving....My friend's Mom's doctor told her when she was 92 or keep moving and walking.... but she just got complacent...and it became a Catch 22 - move and there was pain, but she never stuck with it to work through her pain long enough to get over it.. The Doc, told her if she stopped it was a fast downhill rde and that's exactly what happened, a year later, she died. Keep exercisng, and eating right - stay heallthy!!!

It is only because they want to make more money out of drugging them through taxpayer money!

There are millions of seniors who have the capacity to contribute but who also need a little help ; therefore, with access to community based attendants and support systems they may continue to enjoy a good quality of life living at home, thereby easing the burden on the tax payers. Please afford those who have fought for and helped to build this great country the right to choose for or against long term-care. Thank you.

Yes, it's cheaper to let people die in a bad system than the upfront costs of a good system. But once implemented, if our goal is to let people live, the good system of giving the right care can be offset by reduced emergency room visits and more expensive services that wouldn't have been needed if correct care was given in the first place.
