Improving Long-Term Care for Aging Veterans

Dec 24, 2021
Veterans

The selfless men and women who served in our military have given so much both at home and overseas. As they retire from the service and get older, it’s critical that we step up as Americans to make sure they have access to every resource to meet their changing health care needs. 

That’s why I helped introduce the bipartisan Planning for Aging Veterans Act to support the long-term needs of veterans in Eastern Washington and across the country. This legislation would make sure veterans have options for long-term care, including in-home and community-based services, which are so important for senior veterans to age comfortably and peacefully.

This bill is a small step towards providing the heroes of our country with the retirement care they’ve earned in service to our nation, and I will keep you updated on our progress as we work together to get this bill signed into law.
