February’s meeting began late, as a result of technical difficulties. For some reason it took 20 minutes to get zoom to recognize that I was clicking on the “sign in” button! As a result, we started 15 minutes late with an important question about the stability of paid parental Caregiving as a permanent feature of Attendant Care services through the Aged & Disabled Medicaid Waiver. Please watch the video to learn about some important resources and issues confronting people with disabilities and conditions of aging in central Indiana and beyond!
