Funding for Medicaid and other health services in North Carolina have been tremendously beneficial to the elderly and those with disabilities. Folks like Randolph Reid, thanks to care services programs like PACE of the Triad, are able to improve physical, mental and spiritual health leading to a better life. And for Margaret Toman, whose mother who has advanced Alzheimer’s, such services had allowed her to work full time while her mother received the care needed.

Leaders in the Senate have proposed massive cuts to these services, which serve the state’s poor, disabled and elderly. The cuts include eliminating Medicaid coverage for nearly 12,000 elderly blind or disabled people and a $1 million reduction to a popular program that delivers meals and provides in-home health services to the elderly.
