TASH Applauds HHS Statement on Community Living

TASH approves of a move by the Department of Health and Human Services to create the Administration for Community Living, an entity that will bring together the Administration on Aging, Office of Disability and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities to support initiatives pertaining to community supports and participation. A statement from Secretary Sebelius noted “All Americans – including people with disabilities and seniors – should be able to live at home with the supports they need, participating in communities that value their contributions – rather than in nursing homes or other institutions.” You can find additional information at https://hhs.gov/acl.
