Legislative advocacy is one of the primary benefits of CAHF membership. It is one of the most important activities in which we engage on behalf of long-term care facilities in the state. CAHF has a proven track record of promoting and protecting the long-term care profession's interests and practices through aggressive lobbying, grass roots campaigns, and fighting for policies that support access to quality long-term care services at the local, state and federal levels.
Through advocacy, CAHF strives to provide a credible, respected voice for long-term care with elected officials, state agencies, stakeholder organizations, print, broadcast and social media.
CAHF also works to improve the public’s understanding of long-term care through ongoing campaigns which include promotion of long-term care issues through dialogue with stakeholders, the news media, advertisers and partnerships with community groups and related organizations.
