Please contact your Mass State Senator asap to support the following in the Senate 2016 budget:

1. Senator L'Italien's amendment to enable elders(who fall below 300 % poverty line) to
be financially eligible for certain home care services.

2. Senator Lovely's amendment to increase funding for the case managers who assess, plan, and
follow-up with services for elders in the community.

3. Senator Montigny's amendment to add some essential detail to the bed hold(for nursing home residents) which is is the Ways and Means Committee budget(but does not include observation days, medical and non-medical
leave days).

BTW - The PNA is the same( $72.80) in both the House and the Senate and so should be okay
