Long Term Care Residents Need Support
The COVID-19 crisis has exposed gaps in public health policy, and we need immediate change. Local, state and federal officials cannot maintain the status quo without jeopardizing the most vulnerable in our society.
To keep seniors safe, our communities need:
Long term care residents are high-risk. They need support now.
Public health policy must catch up. Emergency relief is critical for long term care communities, just as it was for hospitals.
How Are Long Term Care Communities Responding?
Caregivers in long term care communities are putting the safety of residents ahead of their own health, risking their lives to serve this vulnerable population. They’re answering the call and upholding the sacred trust families have placed in them, because our residents are like family.
Every long term care community is taking precautions to keep residents safe and healthy, both physically and emotionally, during this crisis.
