NCAL State Leaders Take to Capitol Hill

Drew Thies

Last week, about 25 NCAL “State Leaders” from around the country flew to Washington, D.C. for leadership training and meetings with their Congressional delegations.

The meetings with Members of Congress and their staff focused on the relative value of assisted living communities as a care setting as well as on-going effort to remove the observation stay Medicare access loophole. NCAL advocates visited over 40 offices in all, including many with key Members of Congress on committees of important jurisdiction.

The NCAL members also received advice from the NCAL board and Jeff Call on how to become better leaders in their states and champion the voice of assisted living. With Members of Congress returning to their districts during the August recess, many are slated to continue the relationship they built in Washington by participating in community tours and other long term care-related events.
