CAHF State Legislative Affairs

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.
