Seniors Left Waiting for State-Run Homecare

tates throughout the country are trying to offer homecare funding and support, but often, it’s too little, too late.

A recent article in the CT Mirror, a Connecticut-based publication, tells the story of Antonio Cardoso, a diabetic senior living alone who waited five months to get the state’s homecare assistance, even though he was clearly qualified to receive it. Unable to manage his care by himself, he ended up in the emergency room with complications from his diabetes.
