    She is violating Medicare rules. Medicare will cover 80% of cost provided she gets approval of doctor and uses it only in her home.

    The meme fails in so many ways.

    Do you seriously argue such appeals to emotion? Ah, but it makes you look good and others look positively evil.

    My mother, in her 90s, works for the church doing hospice visits to peopl who can't get out. My dad, 90s, volunteers at local school to help learning disadvantaged kids with reading. You can have the "roadside ravine with a garbage poker".

    I think as was mentioned, most of the jobs would basically be a few hours here and there of community service type work. The interesting thing, though about any type of job is that it helps the worker build confidence to get another, better paying job.

    The aim of the Maine program is not to punish cripples and invalids but to weed out the able with incentives to work.

    But here comes the onslaught of liberal emotional appeals....

    Well GREAT for them - but most 90 year olds cannot do this sort of thing.

    Must say however, that their health at such an age bodes very well for you ...

    Btw - my Dad is 97 and is a backup punter for the Denver Broncos! ;-)

    The OP story specifically said people who can work.

    Most people want to work. It makes them feel valuable.

    There are many jobs at the community and state level that simply don't get done and this could turn that around at the same time it's making these people feel more valuable.

    Even a person in a wheelchair can make administrative phone calls.

    I used to volunteer on the Adopt-a-Highway program but I got too grossed out by dead animals on the side of the road. Many volunteer for different community jobs, but this would ease that burden. I currently volunteer at the Food Bank every few weeks and that would be a good job for someone. They're always needing help. And, a single mother could bring her baby. I know, because one of the volunteer moms does just that.

    Trash pickup, sure, but also help with community landscaping, pool maintenance, there's a whole world of opportunities.

    The OP said it was not mandatory, but I have a feeling many would like to participate.

    No one's talking about the elderly or the infirm here.

    Fact remains FK - Around one in ten Medicaid recipients not ALREADY working might be able to do certain jobs.

    That's a GREAT program! Kids today can benefit soooooo much from what their elders are happy to teach them. We're just getting started with a program similar to that. People are starting to realize that we can cut some of the fluff from school spending if we utilize our amazing network of volunteers.
