Anne Henry, Senior VP & Chief Government Affairs Officer, has noted that when attending the legislative breakfast in your area, there are opportunities for having a positive impact. If you have a personal story of someone you know who has required nursing home care, it is recommended you let your representative know the story and how important it is to adequately fund these services for their constituents. Personal stories emphasize how 24 hour care is required for many people who cannot be adequately cared for at home with services.
