We propose taking 8% of this budget and applying it towards long term home based care. Moreover, we are advocating for home based funds to be obtained by amending Medicare part B, which under the current policy only covers extended care in a Medicare-approved establishment. We do not propose totally doing away with the present system because our policy does recognize the need for these facilities to continue to meet individual needs that cannot be met in a home based environment. The proposal adds the additional component of supplemental income for a home-based long-term care of, which covers

In 1987, the Nursing Home Reform Act was introduced and has started a great leap (post Medicare and Medicaid) into the realm of quality of care for the elderly. The main objective of this Act was to make sure that residents in nursing homes received the quality of care that would ultimately maintain or achieve their highest level of mental, social and physical well being. However, since it was introduced, it has been difficult to make a collective agreement on what is considered acceptable quality of life for someone who needs LTC.
The debate over America’s health care reform has been contested for many years. In his 1993 speech to Congress, America’s former president, Bill Clinton conveys that America’s first step toward “change” is the reform of their health care system. He adopts a friendly but a determined tone to invite and persuade the citizens to the change, while implementing slightly emphasized diction and several factual evidences to support his claim. In the opening of the speech, Clinton’s use of a friendly but a determined tone invites the citizens to attention and persuades them to participate in the “change” of America, first starting with the reform of their health care.

People are given an option to choose how to obtain Medicare coverage.
Seniors can also get an annual wellness visit so they can talk to their doctor about any health concerns.
