March 29 is the day for all home care providers to come to Washington, D.C.
“As an industry, we can't complain that policymakers don't understand our business if we don't show up,” Chani Feldman, Chief Clinical & Government Affairs Officer, MGA Homecare, HCAOA Board Member.
“We can't expect legislators to care about the medically complex and elderly population who need help in their homes and communities if we don't show up. Showing up and advocating for the clients we care for is essential. We are their voice. We are their champions. We must show up.”
HCAOA’s National Home Care Advocacy Day is set for March 29, with a Welcome Reception the night before on March 28. Register for HCAOA National Home Care Advocacy Day today.
Another HCAOA Board member, Brett Ringold, Vice President, A Long Term Companion, gave this reason for coming to our Advocacy Day.
“As agency operators, it’s common to take things one day at a time, as each new day brings its unique challenges and matters that require our attention. However, one of the most important responsibilities that we have as agency leaders is to look ahead and do all that we can to shape our future.
There is no better way to accomplish this change than by meeting with our respective legislators in Washington D.C. It’s vital that policymakers speak with HCAOA members on Advocacy Day, so that they hear firsthand about the issues most important to us.
The pandemic has shone a much overdue spotlight on the importance of home care, and as an Association with over 4,000 members, our collective voice has never been stronger. Please join us in Washington D.C. on March 29 to have your voice heard and help shape the future of home care.”
