I’m a retired RN on Call Back, working for the Department of Developmental Services. I worked for 33 years before retirement, and have worked for 6 more since being called back.
I work with 67 citizens who have mental and physical disabilities needing nursing services along with physical therapy and occupational therapy.
Cutting public services would cut the care citizens need.
And now, with the economy getting worse and worse, the timing couldn’t be worse — more people than ever will be using public services to keep themselves and their families healthy.
