Special Children

I am a LPN who does private duty nursing care for children with special needs that is funded by Medicaid. These kids are precious and medically fragile. Without home care these families will not have the help they need to hold down their jobs and get the help they need to get their children to thrive and improve their health. I see first hand how aide helps the whole family but especially the children. Their strides forward with improving health and accomplishing activities to help them become functioning individuals is so important and cannot be placed with a pricetag! This cannot happen without the care they need and deserve. These programs cannot be cut! These cuts will also impact the caregivers that are needed to take care of these special children. I am asking you to please look elsewhere to trim your budget without taking away the lifeline for these children and their families. Thank You.
