Yakima Herald-Republic: Long-term care an issue for families, Legislature December 5, 2015
The Yakima Herald-Republic Opinion-Editorial:
Long-term care is a reality that must be faced by every community and every family.
Only one-third of seniors have planned for their long-term care needs, yet this is a topic that does not rise to the top of the priority list for most Washingtonians. In a 2014 poll by The Feldman Group, long-term care ranked seventh on the list of priorities for the state Legislature and the governor. Education, jobs and the economy, and state spending topped the list.
This is unacceptable.
