This is the type of health care that the Republicans think the middle class deserves, if they can't afford the private pay rates at the best nursing homes. Ask Romney? Ask Allen? about their detailed plans to cover good quality long term care for the middle class ... NOTHING.

A great story that shows why people should spend their money on a good long term care plan instead of daily illegal drugs, alcohol, tobacco and lottery tickets.

Really? Did you get this news from the mainstream media? Please educate yourself before robitically repeating inaccurate propaganda. When you run low on something, what do you do? Ration. If the government can no longer afford it's bills, how do you presume it pays for healthcare under Obama. I would encourage you to really reasearch IPAB and the Complete Lives Program. I hope you are between 10 and 40. If not, when you see the sham Obamacare is, you will be begging for the Republican plan. I hope you never have to find out. They play on your emotions and you blindly follow everything they say because it sounds humane. I would encourage you to look at the FRUIT and not the rhetoric.

A health research firm reported (in 2007) that Virginia ranked 37th among the states, for overall quality of its Medicaid
programs. Out of a possible 1000 points, Virginia had a score of just over 400. Most people do not know that Medicaid is one of the largest payers for elderly health care, particularly medical and custodial care in nursing homes; amounting to nearly a third of the entire Virginia Medicaid expenditures. The elderly are very vulnerable to aged poverty.

Medicare and Social Security that most older people know about were established to help prevent aged poverty. And, these are among the most successful programs in accomplishing their goals, of any US government program.

But, if states follow the Republican plan - to radically dismantle Medicare, and Social Security, and to reduce oversight of state Medicaid programs - the aged, and their families, are headed into deep poverty.

A CNN MONEY report from 2011 suggests that a heathy 55-year old could purchasing long term care insurance to
cover only three years of care would pay $2800 -$3000 per year in premiums ... every year, forever, until they might need the
three years of care.

It is not likely for most people - other than the ROMNEY TYPE of people - could find $3000 of discretionary money
year after year to purchase long term care insurance.

Further, your idiotic - and immorally biased remarks - fail to invite people to STOP buying guns, in order to buy nursing home insurance instead. Why not? You fail to invite people to STOP buying tickets to ball games, in order to buy nursing home insurance instead. Why not? You fail to invite people to STOP spending money on gas guzzler vehicles, in order to buy nursing home insurance instead. Why not? You fail to invite people to STOP buying golf and tennis memberships, in order to buy nursing home insurance instead. Why not?

There is a moral bias in your comments. AND, further, you fail to wrestle with the actual costs on middle earner families. Why don't you climb up on the ROMNEY car, get in that dog cage, and lick Romney b~lls.

I got my clinical hours there when I was training to be a CNA... it is the worst place I have ever been in. I would regularly go to the nurses to turn in the CNAs who were abusing patients or ignoring them. The nurses would just smirk and say okay. I even went as far as trying to turn them in to a State entity but I was just ignored. There is no reason for these people to have so many bed sores or to be left in a room to just sit and look at each other in silence. I remember one woman crying because nobody would take her back to her bed. The CNAs and nurses just laughed about it and continued to sit around. I took her back and got her settled. I was actually scolded for doing it. I didn't even follow through with my CNA after that because I couldn't take it. I just wanted to help them all but nobody would listen. This was years ago, but clearly nothing has changed. I'm very glad you got your father out of there.

Some points to ponder.
A. Every nursing home has some great employees, and they have some really bad ones. There is bit of good in the worst of them and a bit of bad in the best of them.
You can be at Envoy, or you can be at Westminster, trust me, I have had to deal with both types.
B. The "average" nursing home receives ABOUT $5,000.00 per month to care for a MEDICAID resident (our tax dollars), so thats about TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS PER ROOM !
Ah, the BIG question, where do we start making changes ? HOW do we start making changes ?
1. FAMILY INVOLVMENT !
2. PATIENT CARE PLANS, this is the document that
will put in writing the plan the faciliity will follow in your loved ones care, and if they don't, you must REPORT THEM TO LICENSING !
3.Start a FAMILY COUNCIL MEETING, it only takes TWO people to have a meeting and there are FEDERAL LAWS to help protect those that SPEAK UP when things are not being done correctly!
4. The FACILITY must be held ACCOUNTABLE for POOR care provided, BUT, Family Members must SPEAK UP and report any suspected abuse!
The administrator as well as ANY employee that was aware of the residents concerns should be held responsible for FAILING to report it...its the law!

What is the Republican plan? Has Romney presented one?

I pay 200 a month and it will cover me for life. Why not do real research for a change and then share that with the public? John Hancock and other companies cover tens of millions of people that are far from wealthy. Your comments fail to cite actual quotes and instead deal with the usual liberal agenda. My DBA, daily benefit amount, is now about 260 dollars and since I have the inflation protection the DBA goes up five per cent per cent so as to protect me from inflation. If I stay in a nursing home for 30 years (something very few can pull off) I am totally covered. As with pretty much all plans I have a 90 day waiting period so I will pay for the first 3 months but that is R&C (reasonable and customary) for the industry.

Conceivably my long term care plan can pay out more than several million dollars for my living care-----which sounds comparable to what I see Charlottesville's SSDI majority spending on their alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs and lottery tickets as they go through their taxpayer paid lives.

Don't forget to check out MetLife's excellent plans as well. Blathering about topics like guns, Romney and wealthy people are not going to save you when a big burly nurse's aide like the hero in this story decides he has heard enough of your senile political ravings and starts giving you the kind of applied therapy that the so called justice system should be dishing out. So save yourself by buying a long term care plan, along with real health insurance, instead of pursuing the usual vicarious lifestyle that the welfare majority around here so love to invest in.

Otherwise you have no complaints when Cro-Magnon CNA's start using you for a football.

I see a bright future for you on the Charlottesville city council.

One pack of cigarettes a day will just about cover the cost of a first class nursing home plan. If you like Marlboro or American Spirits you might even have change left over to help pay for a regular medical insurance policy. As it stands now most of our free range democrats have to play the disability and SSI game so they can con their way into getting premature Medicare "health coverage". As loathsome as the GOP can be I don't see them them screaming inside the social services office or social security center on Pantops when they don't get the handouts they demand.
