Connecticut governor signs aging-in-place bill into law

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont signed a bill into law on Tuesday that aims to improve the prospects for seniors who seek to age in place in their current homes.

The law, which was supported by senior advocacy organization AARP, creates a state registry of home care providers to promote awareness and accessibility for home-based care. It also requires home health care and aide agencies, hospice agencies and homemaker-companion agencies to submit information about their employees to the registry, and it adds more avenues to publicly accessible information for aging-in-place programs and more.
