Under a new law championed by AARP Louisiana, nursing homes in the state are required to let residents install a video camera or other monitoring device in their room.
Seven out of 10 Americans turning 65 can expect to need long-term care during their lifetime, and 9 out of 10 Louisianans want to live at home as they age. Yet 70 percent of Medicaid funding for long-term care in the state goes to nursing homes.
