LifeLong Medical Care in Novato is a state-licensed center that provides adult day health care and activities to nearly 60 Marin County seniors and would be forced to close if California Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget cuts were to be approved by the state legislature in order to make up for California's $28 billion deficit. The deep cuts to Medi-Cal would jeopardize up to 300 adult day care centers throughout California and displace nearly 37,000 people that depend on the service. Justin Sullivan/Getty Images
