Heath Care Access

Health care is a right - not a privilege.

MotherBoard is supporting decision makers who are committed to creating an accessible, affordable and dignified health care system that works for all - rather than spending time and resources blocking access and pandering to fears.

Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia  

The nonprofit Senior Services is the leading regional agency for a wide variety of programs and services for seniors. It also does advocacy on some issues. There are at least three programs that help seniors with health care access: 

  • free counseling on Medicare-related issues (and helping seniors navigated through the confusion, if necessary).
  • the ombudsman program that stands up for seniors who might be encountering issues (abuse, neglect, billing, etc.) in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, etc.
  • transportation assistance to medical appointments.
