Living Independently 

Included in Brown's $3 billion in health and welfare spending cuts, is a plan to end the adult day care program. Many people use the service as a way to remain in their homes, rather than moving into far more costly nursing homes. 

Nursing homes cost five times as much per IHSS client. The number of skilled-nursing-centre beds has dwindled through the years as IHSS’ success has grown at helping the elderly continue living independently.
