Long-term care for seniors and the disabled in California is ranked 15th in the nation, according to a new score card released this week by AARP’s Public Policy Institute, the Commonwealth Fund and the SCAN Foundation.

Not bad, according to AARP California lobbyist Casey Young, until you look more closely at the categories and subcategories measured. Most of the areas in which the state scored well are being whittled down or axed by budget constraints.
