Sign to help: North Carolina urgently needs better care!

In our country, someone turns 65 every eight seconds, and already, over 13.3% of North Carolinians 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 Senators Hagan and Burr to support Senate Resolution 128, which calls for the creation of an affordable quality care system. Sign today and ensure they feel the public pressure to speak out on behalf of North Carolina’s aging population and their caregivers.

As North Carolinians, 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 Senators Hagan and Burr to support the resolution, we’ll deliver the petition directly to their offices.

Letter to
Senator Richard Burr
Senator Kay Hagan
U.S. Senate
Every eight seconds, someone turns 65 in America. For North Carolinians, the silver tsunami is already here. Over 13.3% of North Carolinians are over the age of 65, many of whom will need long-term care. We need a system of care that will meet the needs of both our rapidly aging population and the growing workforce that enables seniors to live and age with dignity in their own homes.

Please help to ensure that North Carolinians, and all Americans, will have access to affordable, quality long-term care by assuming a leadership role in supporting Senate Res.128.
