According to a story in the Ventura County Star, California has been ranked 15th among the states on providing long-term services for older adults and the disabled. This report was based on a study by the AARP Public Policy Institute. The findings by the Institute show that California ranks last in support for caregivers and the quality of life of those needing care. The report also points out that much of the problem in all states is the budget cuts in the area of public programs.
