Homecare Advocates Urge the California Legislature: Stand up to Governor
Date:1/8/2010

essential services such as these, the need doesn't dry up," said Donna Calame, Executive Director of the San Francisco IHSS Public Authority. "The Schwarzenegger administration has never presented a realistic portrayal of the outcomes of these cuts; that, in fact, we are abandoning people to quiet lives of desperation. The 'lucky' ones will find a place in nursing homes or go to emergency rooms at a higher cost to taxpayers."

"I'm a senior citizen and veteran and, yes, I'm disabled. However I'm able to live independently at home because of home care, but enough is enough. I'm tired of hearing our state leaders say 'every program budget cut is on the table.' Why is an efficient program that I rely upon still on the table when it's been proven repeatedly to be among the most cost-effective in the country?" said Herb Meyer, a Korean War veteran, senior and IHSS consumer from Marin County. "The public wants a fair and balanced budget, and that means protecting programs that give taxpayers the most bang for their buck."

"While we recognize the dire fiscal situation of the California state budget, it is inexcusable for the Governor to sacrifice the health and welfare of seniors and people with disabilities and their caregivers with these devastating budget cut proposals," said Lauren Rolfe, Executive Director of the California Association of Public Authorities.

"The public knows a lot about IHSS and supports it by overwhelming majorities in every survey ever conducted. And why wouldn't they? It's both more humane and more cost-efficient than the alternatives," said Frances Gracechild, Executive Director of Resource for Independent Living.
