Connecticut Seniors Long Term Care Prioritized by State


by State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

As the elderly population steadily grows, there is an urgency to provide resources and assistance to this community.  During Monday’s session, we took a significant step to achieving that goal by passing HB 5001a top priority for House Democrats this session. 

HB 5001, which passed with bipartisan support, protects and prioritizes elderly residents in our state. This bill:  Makes it easier for seniors to age in place Creates a nursing home database, providing consumers with an easy and reliable way to compare locations around the state Establishes incentives to encourage nursing homes to improve care I am glad to support a bill that gives seniors the attention and resources that they deserve. The bill now moves to the Senate for its consideration.
As always, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact my office at (860) 240-8585 or email me directly.

Joseph P. Gresko
