Sen. Richard Blumenthal: Home Care and Hospice Cause “Can Be One That Actually Brings Us Together”

United States Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) spoke at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s 2016 March on Washington Senate Breakfast. Sen. Blumenthal is the Ranking Member on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and a member of the Special Committee on Aging. The Senator was introduced by Ms. Susan F. Adams, Vice President of Alliance Integration, Masonicare in Wallingford, CT. Ms. Adams highlighted Sen. Blumenthal’s record supporting legislation for seniors such as reauthorization of the Older Americans Act and recognizing the critical role of health IT. “In all of his years of public service in Connecticut, he has always been very visible, receptive, and available,” she said.

“As you know, hospice and health care provided to the elderly are more and more on people’s minds as more and more of us grow older,” Sen. Blumenthal said. “The demographics of our nation’s population show that we need to pay attention.” He said this requires a focus on home care and hospice, “not just in the abstract, not just in words,” but through action on key priorities.
