Gov. Phil Bredesen was in Kingston on Wednesday to discuss new changes in long-term care, which will be the addition of more choices in home-and community-based services.
The changes come in the form of a new law called the Long Term Community Choice Act of 2008 signed by Bredesen in June.
“It gives families a lot more options,” Bredesen said.
The act restructures the long-term care system and the way funds are spent, offering more than simply nursing home care.
