PCA Program Rally!

September 20, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Rally for the PCA Program

Overtime, not nursing homes! 

Tuesday, September 20, 11:00 a.m., State House, Boston 

PCA work hours will be restricted. The authorization process for consumer PCA hours may change. Rally for the PCA program! Visits with legislators directly after the Rally.

One story about the overtime cap:

An elderly veteran, with a range of disabilities, including cancer, gets over 60 total PCA hours per week. In response to the mailing he received from the state, telling him he can’t have his one PCA work more than 40 hours/week, he said, “I might as well pack up my house and move into a nursing home.” 

Partial listing of Rally sponsors include:  DPC, BCIL, MWCIL, Stavros, Mass Home Care, 1199SEIU, IA, NE Arc, OCES, CLW, UCP of Metro Boston, CP MA, GSES, Enable, Inc., Easter Seals, NILP, and more sponsors wanted!
