Sacramento, California (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

6Beds, Inc. announced today the organization of a rally at the State Capitol in Sacramento, CA on August 5, 2014 from 10AM until 5PM. The rally will form on the South Side Steps (N Street) and protest legislation targeting 6 bed Senior Care Homes (Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly).

6Beds, Inc. has taken a stand that if the majority of the bills forming The RCFE Reform Act of 2014 pass, the result is that it will be extremely difficult for the elderly in California to find affordable care. This will also place an unnecessary burden on the government as Medicare/Medical patient costs of over $7700 per month per person to the Government, are likely to be passed onto the government.

Residential Care Facilities are smaller, more intimate, home-like residences that provide loving care, supervision, home-cooked meals, and an extended family to their residents, unlike the more institutionalized larger facilities. Where would you want your loved one, or yourself, to live as he or she ages?

The additional costs of the proposed legislation will burden Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly an additional $11,000 per month per facility or nearly $2,000 per month, per resident, on average. That cost will have to be passed on to RCFE elderly residents who are already stretched financially.

The rally on August 5, 2014 will allow 6Beds, Inc. members and other owners of Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly to have a voice and to show the elderly in California that they are fighting for their right to choose the delivery of care they desire. This rally will will show the legislators how these bills will adversely affect the elderly and the current Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly in California as neither group will be able to sustain the burden and great expense that these bills will place on the system if they are passed. This will result in the loss of hundreds of small businesses in California, with thousands of California’s elderly forcibly relocated from loving care homes to institutionalized corporate care.
