Patti's Comments: This budget will just keep folks locked up in nursing homes and institutions as the only places to secure long term care services. The services need to be separated from the place, as most folks prefer to get their services in a home-like setting. Furthermore, we cannot afford to build a nursing home or group home for every person in need of long term care. Please let the folks in Lansing know that this budget is bad public policy for Michigan! Thanks.
