The State's 2012 budget is done.  Most elder related issues survived intact. The PNA for nursing and rest home residents, home care, protective services,group ....FOR MORE CLICK TITLE...  adult foster care either maintained their recent levels or the higher level from the Legislature. Programs are not being paid more nd are mostly receiving the same payments they have this past fiscal year.Adult day care remains a continuing issue and there will be more this year as the industry negotiates with the Commonwealth about rates, eligibility requirements for clients, etc.
