North Carolina Scores Low for Long-Term Services and Supports

Health Care

AARP has come out with a Long Term Scorecard, which ranks each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia  on “Long-Term Services and Supports for Older Adults, People with Physical Disabilities, and Family Caregivers.”

Unfortunately, North Carolina ranks in bottom 50%, at number 24 for 2011.  However, NC does have a higher rating than all other southern states except for Virginia.  Hopefully in coming years North Carolinians and their elected officials will work to improve our offerings to those in long-term care and their families.  If you can’t wait – move to Minnesota – it’s ranked number one!
