Long-term care services and products should be included in any effort to revamp the nation's healthcare system, according to 85% of the people who participated in a recent poll. The survey was conducted by the Mellman Group, on behalf of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. "These results prove once again that Americans do not draw the artificial line between acute care and long-term services,” said AAHSA CEO Larry Minnix. "It's time for Congress to recognize that long-term services and supports are a part of healthcare that voters expect Congress to address before the baby boomers strain an already strapped system."
