by, Martin Bayne, ChangingAging ContributorTweet2Share2ShareEmail4 SharesDear Mrs. ClintonI noticed your campaign launch video skipped people with disabilities. Can you even imagine what it’s like to be housed in a facility filled with floors of fellow residents crippled with disabilities and struggling to keep their head above the ambient despair of depression, dementia, and death?I can.Although I’m only sixty-five years old, I’ve spent the last thirteen of these years as a resident of an assisted living facility (Young-Onset Parkinson’s).Recently, I was struck with an idea so simple, efficient, and powerful, I was compelled to call my closest friends to share the idea with them. To the person, they responded – “How can I help?”Now, I’m going to share that idea with you – with the sincere hope that you, too, will call me with one simple question . . .“How can I help?”The 2017 Care ActThis legislation is designed to create an entrance strategy for foreign nationals who wish to become US citizens, while simultaneously easing the burden of long-term care on American families and helping people age in their communities.The program itself is straightforward: a person seeking US citizenship applies for a visa under The 2017 Care Act. This special visa binds the applicant to an American family for “x” number of years – a negotiated period of time (minimum value for x is five) in which they will care for a member of the family who needs long-term care.During this period, known as the “care stage”, the applicant is responsible for the basic in-home care (Activities of Daily Living – bathing, feeding, transferring, etc.) of the family member for an agreed-upon compensation and number of hours and days/week.The host family is responsible for the applicant’s housing and meals during the care stage. Ideally, the applicant has familial ties to the host family.At the end of the care contract, the applicant has satisfied his/her portion of the contract and is free to live out the remainder of their life as an American Citizen with no further obligation to the host family.Related PostsTweet2Share2ShareEmail4 SharesTags: Aging-in-place home care Martin Bayne
