Due to inflation and COVID-19, the cost of care for our Seniors has increased by over 35% since 2019.

 

The crippling impact of these increases is felt on the very seniors we serve in Arizona’s elderly and physically disabled population.

 

But the State of Arizona has the opportunity to fix this by increasing funding to long term care by a little over 9 million dollars.

 

This will allow Arizona’s most vulnerable seniors to get the care they deserve in our skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities.

 

By 2030 there will be as many people over 60 years of age living in Arizona as there are children under the age of 17. We cannot afford to put off planning for this rapidly growing population.

We must increase our availability of high quality long-term care options and improve access for older adults and those with disabilities.

 

That means increasing funding to long term care by a little over $9 million dollars, allowing skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities to hire qualified staff and prevent workforce shortages. 

For just an additional $5 per day per patient, we can help ensure our loved ones get quality care, and those who care for them get the wages they deserve.
