In-Home Care Providers Asked to Keep Providing Care Despite Lack of Funding


Some agencies that provide in-home care to senior citizens say they’ve been asked to keep providing the care… even though the state program to pay for the care is almost out of money, and there’s no telling when those agencies will get paid.

 

The state notified in-home care providers last week that funds for the program would be used up within days.

 

Lawmakers are blasting the Quinn administration for failing to plan farther ahead and make the necessary budget adjustments to keep paying for those services.

 

There are fears that some agencies will have to lay off workers… or perhaps close their doors… because of the lag in state funding.
