As a result of Friends of Residents' April 3rd LTC advocacy day and the 80 dedicated advocates who participated, members of the NC General Assembly have responded!

Several bills have been introduced in the House directly related to our priority concerns.

H752, H753, H811 and H938 all address increasing the personal needs allowance for Medicaid LTC residents.

H754 would provide funding for additional long term care ombudsmen. Great News!
