Facility Tours Pick Up in August

The August Congressional recess is in full swing, which means though things are quiet in D.C., AHCA/NCAL members are at the center of the action. While Members of Congress are back in their home states, it is a critical time for them to see what our profession is all about.

Many AHCA/NCAL members who have visited Washington earlier this year have been able to invite their Member of Congress back to their community and continue the conversation. Mikayla Armitage (above) of The Willows Assisted Living center visited her Senator, Deb Fischer (R-NE) while visiting D.C. for AHCA/NCAL’s Congressional Briefing. Mikayla stayed in touch with Sen. Fischer’s office and when the Senator was back in Nebraska, she paid The Willows a visit. You can read Mikayla’s great Congressional Briefing story here.

If you would like to schedule a tour while Congress is back in their districts, have already shown a Member around, or are in the process of coordinating a visit, we’d love to hear about it. Please contact Matt Smyth (, Michael Cowden (, or Drew Thies ( with any information or questions. We’d love to hear from you!
