With Legislative Session Over, It’s Time to Redouble on Key Home Care Priorities
In the whirlwind state legislative session finale early this month, the Senate and Assembly thankfully reconsidered passage of several bills that would have enormously burdened home care providers still struggling in the pandemic.
Home care’s needs are urgent; and, of course, the overall health and safety threat of COVID-19 remains with us.
Because these pandemic struggles persist, there's also much work to do post-session to help. While the state's declared health emergency may be over, home care and hospice providers are still coping with the lingering aftermath of COVID’s devastation in severe financial, operational, and staffing terms.
