Martina Robinson, my friend and fellow former Green-Rainbow Party candidate and advocate for people with disabilities, is writing a great set of articles on the day to day and political issues that people with disabilities face. Of late she has been focusing on whether nursing home care is really cost effective for the state government and whether it really helps people with disabilities better than home and community based care. Here are the first three articles on this topic:
- Nursing homes vs. community based personal care services
- The woodwork effect is a myth
- The new math: do nursing homes make sense?
Here is a list of the other articles she has written.
