Petition Asks Congress to Focus on Long-Term Care Access

April 25, 2013

Advance CLASS is circulating an online petition asking Congress to address the flaws in the U.S. long-term care system.

“Our current system forces people to spend down into poverty before receiving the help they need, fails to provide realistic opportunities for personal planning, and fails to provide adequate support to families and other caregivers,” the petition says.

“We urge Congress to create broader access and flexible and more affordable long-term services and supports options,” it continues.

Advance CLASS is an advocacy organization that works to strengthen the country’s long-term services and supports system.
