The Georgia Council on Aging (Co-Age) recently announced its legislative priorities going into the 2022 legislative session. They are:

  • Restore funding to home and community based services which was cut when Governor Kemp ordered that every department reduce spending.
  • Appropriate $300,000 to $500,000 to increase funding for the Long-Term Care Ombudsman program.
  • Allow Medicaid to cover assisted living care.
  • The CARE Act, which would require facilities to better inform families and caregivers of the care they need to provide to their elderly loved ones and reduces the chance of hospital readmission.
  • Expand nursing home options.

Short videos made by the proponents of each legislative proposal are on the Co-Age website.
