IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR OLDER ADULTS

The Coalition promotes the dignity, self-determination and well-being of North Carolina's older adults. Together, we represent more than 1 million votes in North Carolina.

2017 Legislative Priorities ...

  • Increase the recurring state funding for the Home and Community Care Block Grant (HCCBG) by $7 million.
  • Establish a joint legislative committee to examine issues pertaining to the state’s growing older adult population, including health care and financial security, and to make recommendations on how the state can better support North Carolinians to age with dignity.
  • Increase state funding and support for adult protective services (APS) and guardianship services and conduct a comprehensive evaluation of these services.
  • In order to better support direct care workers and help reduce worker turnover, invest in Medicaid Personal Care Services (PCS) and Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults(CAP-DA) programs by increasing the reimbursement rate over a two year period from $13.88 per hour to the national average of $18.82.
  • Pass legislation that will support working family caregivers and help to keep them in the workforce.
