Oregon is known as a leader in helping keep seniors in their homes.  But proposed budget cuts may put some of that State funding in jeopardy. Department of Human Services spokesman Gene Evans says the Governor has presented his budget, but lawmakers have the final say: “The proposal calls for a 16% reduction of those services, and these are things line assisting someone with their medication, or assisting someone with bathing, or getting dressed, or eating or mobility. So these are just kind of day to day activities, that with a little assistance people can stay at home.“ The legislature must approve the budget by the end of June.
