AARP Urges Legislators to Focus on Nursing Home Safety
As lawmakers develop the fiscal 2022–23 state budget, AARP Michigan is urging them to shift the balance of long-term care funding toward home- and community-based services, with less emphasis on nursing homes and other institutional settings.

AARP supports increased spending for home and community based services (HCBS), dementia awareness, telemedicine parity and a wage increase for direct care workers. The organization has strongly supported these advances, and in some cases, for several years.
