Santa Cruz adult health day care centers threatened by Medi-Cal cuts
The Mercury News

Salud Para La Gente is scrambling to find a way to keep the doors open on its adult health care center, Elderday, in the face of disappearing state funding. Gov. Jerry Brown’s revised budget, released last week, eliminates Medi-Cal funding for the centers that serve 37,000 elderly and disabled adults statewide. The loss of funding is expected to result in the shuttering of centers throughout the state.
