Help Us Carry the Voices of Residents to Policymakers

November 28, 2022

Our work continues to push for critical reforms in the long-term care system. And we know that we’re on the right track! The newly released study from the prestigious National Academies of Science, Engineering & Medicine, and the proposed reforms unveiled by the Administration earlier this year both recognize and validate what Consumer Voice has been advocating for over many years:

  • The need for more staff

  • Increased staff training

  • Greater transparency and accountability of owners and resources

  • A more effective oversight system

  • Increased support for direct care staff

  • Greater emphasis on providing person-centered care

… among other things.

Your support has helped us carry the voices of residents and families to policymakers showing the impact of a failed system. Momentum is on our side to achieve critical reforms. With your continued help we will be at the table as decisions are being made to ensure the well-being of residents is at the center of any policy development and resident voices, like Maurice's, are heard.

Together we can make sure the recommendations and proposals put forward this year become reality for nursing home residents across the country!

We cannot do this important work without you!

Make a contribution to support residents.
