An effort is being made to add monies to the mass State budget for the Home Care Program. Funds were added in the recenlty passed 2013.....FOR MORE CLICK TITLE...  budget but they are insufficient to eliminate the wait lists.As of 7/1 basic home care had 851 people and ECOP(program for nursing home eligible but community dwelling elders) was 1,110 people all waiting for care. New monies would be added to Supplemental Budget H 4285 at line item 9110-1550. Representatives can contact Chair Dempsey of the House Ways and Means Comm. This legislative session ends on 7/31 so all decisions have to be made by then.
