North Carolina Scores Low for Long-Term Services and Supports
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!
