"Obviously, we feel that they should be funded at the same level that they are now," said Tracy Colvard, a lobbyist in Raleigh for the Association for Home and Hospice Care.
"There's always room for improvement in everything," Colvard said.
Colvard, with the trade association, says he has heard the same alarming reports that proponents of the cuts cite, scenarios where home-care companies approach customers about having free house-cleaning whether circumstances justify it or not.
"It's anecdotal," he said.

"We were surprised it was this strong," Tracy Colvard, director of government relations and public policy for the Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina, said about the governor's recommendation.
He said a large number of people in the program would not meet the criteria for needing extensive assistance but still dependent on the in-home help for basic tasks like bathing and changing clothes. Many of them would face moving to nursing homes or assisted living facilities, if lawmakers were to approve Perdue's recommendation, Colvard said.
He said home care agencies now plan to appeal to legislators, who return to Raleigh next month to debate the budget, to leave the program intact.
"There's many more legislators who are much more positive about it," Colvard said.

More than 200 of the residents who could be affected by the cuts are in this area, said Tracy Colvard, director of government relations for the Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina.
As of March 2009, Chowan County had 126 recipients of Medicaid funding in the personal care services program allowing a home care aide to provide residents assistance with bathing, grooming and dressing, he said. Pasquotank County had 176 program recipients, Perquimans had 69, Camden had 15 and Currituck had 13.
Colvard said the Senate's nearly $55 million cut to the program would reduce the program's budget by 60 percent, affecting the thousands of residents across the state who qualify for state-funded home care and the 20,000 home care assistants who are employed through the funding. With the state Medicaid funding gone, federal matching funds for the program would disappear.
