New Hampshire's nursing home care providers thank Governor Chris Sununu and the Executive Council for building on last year's vital efforts to support long-term care with Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act funds by approving, on October 13, a new infusion of this desperately needed federal assistance.
We're in it for the long haul. As Harvard Professor David Grabowski predicted in September 2020, "The amount of fatigue that the direct caregivers are feeling right now is going to begin to manifest itself in individuals leaving the workforce, choosing a different profession." In New Hampshire we pride ourselves on the nation-leading quality of our nursing home care, and yet that quality is challenged by a workforce shortage. We cannot thank New Hampshire state government enough for its ongoing support.
