Tennessee spends less on alternatives to nursing home care than any other state in the union. Now, Westsiders have an opportunity to help change that unfortunate situation by signing a card urging Gov. Bredesen to sup-

port a resolution passed last year by the General Assembly calling for a balanced long-term care system. The system would provide for more services, such as adult day care, assisted living and in-home respite care. The cards urge the governor to support the AARP - s p o n s o red resolution, which calls for the creation of a global long-term budget that would funnel more money to alternative care. The expected result is a substantial saving of taxpayer money by not relying heavily on nursing home care. Jim and Judy Winchester of Westside Unitarian Universalist Church have the cards. Signed cards, part of

AARP Tennessee “Choices for Care” campaign, will be taken to Nashville on Wednesday, April 5 by the local AARP chapter and pooled with thousands of other signed cards from chapters around the state. For more information, call Judy Winchester at 865- 691-401
