Your Elected Officials Need to Hear from You!

Congress has many challenges and it is as necessary for the voice of long term care to be heard. Members of Congress value their constituents’ opinions and it is critical that we offer them the opportunity to hear first-hand the quality care that we provide.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the way we interact with Members of Congress and their staff has drastically changed. Instead of meeting in person, virtual platforms such as Zoom and WebEx, have become the normal for meetings.

Now more than ever, Members of Congress and their staff need to hear from you. Each facility has been affected differently, and your story needs to be heard.

AHCA/NCAL staff stands ready to help you engage with your Members and provide you with valuable resources. Please contact Matt Smyth or Angela Sargent for additional details and materials.


Host a Facility Tour

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, facility tours are currently suspended, and we are unclear as to when they will resume. Again, we are more than willing to help you interact with your Members of Congress virtually.

Attend a Town Hall Meeting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person town hall meetings have been suspended until further notice. Many Members of Congress have moved to hosting town hall meetings virtually, through platforms such as Zoom or on Social Media. If you are interested in finding out if your Member of Congress is hosting a virtual town hall in the near future, please contact Angela Sargent.
