AARP Nebraska has endorsed the Home Care Consumer Bill of Rights Act. LB 698, introduced by State Sen. Heath Mello of Omaha, would spell out protections for Nebraskans who receive home care services to help them stay independent and reduce their need to move into a nursing home. The bill would apply to Nebraskans over the age of 60 and younger persons with disabilities.
 The Aging Nebraskans Task Force today released recommendations to plan for the future of the state’s rapidly aging population. The number of Nebraskans age 65 and over is projected to grow from 246,277 in 2010 to 324,697 in 2020 - a 31.6% increase.
