The Eldercare Workforce Alliance released an issue brief last week outlining the impact that the budget sequester would have on care for older adults in an attempt to convince lawmakers to find alternative cost-saving measures that will have a less detrimental effect on older adults and the supply of qualified professionals available to care for them. According to the report's authors, "While we understand the fiscal constraints facing the nation, we feel it imperative to stress that stagnant or decreased investment due to cuts will cause the crisis to worsen, and care for our nation's older adults will suffer."
