Protecting and Prioritizing Seniors

March 22, 2024

HB 5001

The Aging Committee has approved HB 5001, an omnibus bill that would enhance support and assistance for our beloved seniors. The proposal is a top priority for the House, and I'm pleased to be a co-sponsor of this bill and see it advancing through the legislative process. 

Issues impacting seniors are often ignored. Our elderly residents need support and access to resources that will provide them with the best quality of life possible. HB 5001 does this by: 

  • Requiring additional training of home care workers 
  • Creating a more efficient process for accessing Medicaid
  • Expanding the Office of Long-Term Care Ombudsman
