The President of The United States

Act for Care!

    1. Sponsored by

      Caring Across Generations

We know that an American turns 65 every eight seconds. We know that 70% of people over 65 need long-term care, and that the majority of Americans prefer to age in their own homes with the help of dedicated care workers, or under the care of their loved ones. We know that we’ll need leadership to transform our country’s care system and allow everyone over 65 the opportunity to age as they choose, with access to dignified, in-home care.

We’re asking the President and his administration to take public leadership to prepare for the long-term care our rapidly aging country needs by asking Congress to support Senate Res. 128. Congress just came back in session, and our country needs them to get long-term care on the agenda.

      PUTTING YOUR PARENTS AWAY IN THE "OLD AGE HOME" HAS BECOME AS COMMONPLACE AS SENDING YOUR CHILDREN AWAY TO BOARDING SCHOOL, AND JUVENILE HALL, JUST SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEM, OR DEAL WITH FAMILY PROBLEMS! AND FOR THE REST OF US, WE'LL JUST BE DECLARED INCOMPETENT, AND SENT TO A COUNTY HOME, WHICH IS LIKE AN INSANE ASYLUM!
