We strongly support funding for home-related services such as home health care, personal care, and other basics such as transportation and meals delivered to the home. Programs such as these help individuals avoid entry into nursing homes or other long term care facilities. Should an individual have to enter a nursing home, we work to ensure that they receive good care while they are a resident of the facility.
It is important to note that many Missouri health care providers promote and maintain good services for individuals in their care. This includes services in the home as well as institutional care.
It is equally important to mention that there are also individuals and companies working in the long term care arena who do not provide good services resulting in the abuse and neglect of individuals in their care.
The Missouri Coalition for Quality Care was created to help those who can not help themselves. It is sad that some seniors have become forgotten citizens. You can help change that by joining us in our mission. Help us eliminate abuse and neglect in our State.
