A non-profit group that's been advocating for the rights and dignity of nursing home residents in Vanderburgh County for more than 30 years, VOICES, is holding pajama drive for seniors.
Executive Director Michelle Motta says the majority of residents living in long-term care homes receive Medicaid to help pay for their care. All of their monthly check, except $52, goes to the facility to help pay for the cost of their care.
Costs of their personal phone/cable service, haircuts, snacks, clothes and other basic needs are often the responsibility of the resident. That means many are often in need of good quality pajamas.
