Essential Family Caregiver Plan is Urgent

46 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission does not meet as a body again until August 20. We cannot wait another three weeks for a discussion about an essential family caregiver in long term care facilities and a recommendation. People are dying alone. Lifelong spouses are separated. People with cognitive issues are wondering why they have been abandoned. People with dementia and Alzheimer's slipping away without family in their final weeks. Staff are overburdened and shouldering the blame because family members who spoon fed, hydrated, clipped nails, cleaned rooms, did laundry, and stood in the gap are no longer there. We need a plan. There will always be another valid reason for a delay. But we cannot isolate innocent human beings indefinitely. People with no voice need the rest of us to speak for them. It has been 140 days.
