February 21, 2012

Over 10 million seniors, individuals with disabilities, and their families struggle to find and pay for long-term care to help them stay safe and independent at home — and OUT of nursing homes.

The need for long-term services and supports (LTSS) is expected to grow to over 15 million Americans by 2020, but the issue has been completely absent from this year's presidential campaign, with no mention during the debates or on candidates' websites.

That's why we joined 14 other national aging and disability organizations to invite the candidates to answer five questions about this critical topic. So far, only two have responded.

Below are the most frequently used words from each response. See if you can tell which candidates responded based on these terms. Then learn more about long-term services and supports and the 2012 Presidential Candidate Survey.
