California website offers help on long term care coverage

California Caregiver Resource Centers

Mar 7, 2012 — "The website states that the majority of long-term care is provided by relatives, and provides a link to 11 Caregiver Resource Centers, which assist those who provide care to family members. However, as Coffey noted, Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed 2012-13 budget would eliminate funding for the caregiver centers and make big cuts in the In-Home Supportive Services program, which would impact 254,000 recipients whose household tasks are frequently handled by family members."
