NASW-NJ LEGISLATIVE AGENDA:
NASW-NJ advocates for ongoing efforts to effectively support the aging population by:
- Eliminating barriers to receiving appropriate medical care, including high financial costs for in-home services, inadequacy and loss of Medicare benefits, inadequate prescription drug coverage;
- Providing adequate day programming with meaningful and appropriate opportunities for work and socialization;
- Providing adequate support for kinship care and for elderly persons caring for their grandchildren; and
- Maintaining adequate palliative care for those at the end of life.
