Crisis in Caregiving

I don't know how families with disabled loved ones who need 24 hour care even manage. This scenario described in this article just makes me want to cry. Why are we so dismissive of the plight of these families?

This is from the Columbus Dispatch and I will cross post it in the Ohio category also.

"Legislators need to better understand that people with disabilities generally have no choice but to rely on publicly funded services, she said. “You hear, ‘We’ve got to cut Medicaid spending.’ Well, there isn’t anything else that can fund these services,” Spargo said."
