Elder Care: Budget Cuts Affecting Services to Elderly (CA. USA)

Supervisors asked to protest cuts to ombudsman program
The board will discuss writing state representatives to get funds restored for elder abuse investigations

To the growing list of people who are affected by the state budget crisis, add the elderly in nursing and residential care facilities.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken his blue pencil and vetoed the state’s share of the ombudsman program, leaving only the federal half of the funding.

The cuts already have cost one staff position and moved the local program out of its role as lead agency in elder abuse investigations. Those duties will add to the workload of local law enforcement and result in fewer prosecutions, Stenson wrote.
