Your Elected Officials Need to Hear from You!

Congress has many challenges to tackle 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 see first-hand the quality care that we provide.
 
We encourage you to reach out to your Member of Congress and invite them to tour your facility.
 
AHCA/NCAL staff stands ready to help you schedule these tours and provide you with valuable resources. Please contact Matt Smyth or Angela Sargent for additional details and materials.

Attend a Town Hall Meeting

While Members of Congress are at home for district work periods, many will host town hall meetings with their constituents. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your elected officials, share your story, and advocate against additional cuts to skilled nursing facilities. For a schedule of town hall meetings in your area, please contact Angela Sargent.​
