Disability rights In schools are civil rights too!

Disability rights In schools are civil rights too!
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), was signed into law on July 26. 1990. More than fifty million Americans have some kind of physical, cognitive, sensory, or mental disability. The ADA’s extensive provisions for employment, state and local governments, transportation,public accommodations, and telecommunications, has helped end discrimination towards those with disabilities tremendously. Congress' concern to eliminate intentional and benign discrimination against disabled individuals is evident in the findings and purpose of the ADA. 42 U.S.C. § 12101.

M&M Senior Living Open House in Orangevale on Wednesday, 7/15!

Owners of M&M Senior Living, a new and unique 16-bed assisted living facility in Orangevale, are hosting a complimentary Open House on Wednesday evening, July 15, from 4 to 8 p.m.   In addition to its boutique size and welcoming feel, what sets it apart is that one of the business owners is a family physician -- Dr. Mark DeBruin -- who has a medical practice nearby, helps to oversee the facility and stops by on a nearly daily or as-needed basis. 

Offering a high quality of care for residents, a few highlights of M&M Senior Living include the following:
