Illinois plans to take away my home care worker. I won’t last long without her.

I am an 82-year-old in the Community Care Program. Last week, I testified at the Illinois Department on Aging’s public hearing in Chicago against Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposed Community Reinvestment Program.

I am a senior who is not enrolled in Medicaid, and that means I am one of 36,000 seniors who the governor wants to move into his new Community Reinvestment Program.

I have worked my entire life. I started off on a farm, then a bakery, and finally the railroad.

Now that I am older, I need a little help around my house. After my wife passed, my health went downhill. I needed help. That’s when my home care worker Georgie started coming in to help me.
