HCAOA Launches National Campaign to Bring Lawmakers into Home Care Clients' Homes
Elected officials who vote on legislation that impacts our industry, our businesses and our clients’ lives often have little understanding of the value that home care provides to millions of older Americans and people with disabilities. HCAOA is launching the national “Bring the Vote Home” campaign to educate lawmakers by inviting them into the homes of our clients (their constituents!) to learn first-hand how home care makes such a profound difference in the lives of those who rely on it.
All members are encouraged to participate in this initiative – HCAOA has made it easy for you with a step-by-step guide to identify and contact lawmakers, issues to discuss, and follow up when the visit is complete.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a NON-PARTISAN, INFORMATIONAL effort to ensure members of Congress understand the needs of this country’s growing elderly population and their desire to stay at home as they age.
