[SEATTLE, WA] – Washington ranks #1 when it comes to meeting the long-term care needs of older residents and people with disabilities, but AARP warns more must be done, at an accelerated pace, to meet changing demographic demands. Specific areas of concern in Washington include the need for more job opportunities for adults with disabilities who need assistance with activities of daily living. This, according to a new, comprehensive state-by-state Scorecard from AARP with support of the nation’s leading organizations behind quality long-term care, The Commonwealth Fund and SCAN Foundation.
AARP's Chief Executive Officer A. Barry Rand has written a letter to our national Senators encouraging them to protect seniors on vital issues like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act.
