Seventeen percent comes out of the residents pockets that live here. Now if the budget cuts do go through it could be devastating and could close fifty nursing homes statewide. “If they close this place down I don’t' have a place to go. I don't.

These residents say they’re not looking for a handout. Just a little bit of help. “And besides we're paying a certain amount ourselves. It's not like they're footing the whole bill you know,” says Johnson.
