In our country, someone turns 65 every eight seconds, and already, in Rhode Island, over 14% of our residents are over the age of 65. We need a comprehensive long-term care system to support our rapidly aging population, and we need it now.
Join us in urging Senator Whitehouse to support Senate Resolution 128, which calls for the creation of an affordable quality care system. Sign today and ensure that he feels the public pressure to speak out on behalf of Rhode Island’s aging population and their caregivers.
As residents of Rhode Island, we need our senators to play a leadership role in creating a better long-term care system. That's why when you sign this petition urging Senator Whitehouse to support the resolution, we’ll deliver the petition directly to his office.
