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.
Effective advocacy is a skill that can be learned, honed and perfected. Putting a face to aging issues is key to success and CAHF members are our best advocates. Your voice is vital and can make all the difference!
