Home Healthcare Funds For Seniors Nearly Gone

The state of Illinois is nearly out of the funds used to pay for home healthcare for thousands of seniors. 


A letter went out to providers this week warning that the funds will be depleted by March 15, more than three months before the end of the fiscal year. 


Unless lawmakers approve more money, some home healthcare agencies could close or be forced to lay off workers, and many seniors who receive those services at home could be forced into nursing homes.
