Protect Georgia Care

COVID-19 presents an unprecedented threat to vulnerable seniors in Georgia’s nursing homes and assisted living communities.

We are taking extraordinary measures to fight this virus and keep residents safe and healthy – but we can’t do it alone.

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:

Adequate and Reliable Supplies of Personal Protective Equipment

Access to Timely Testing for Residents and Caregivers

Emergency Resources and Relief Funding

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.

Long Term Care 101

Knowing the terminology used in the long term care profession is an important first step in understanding the needs of staff who are protecting vulnerable seniors from COVID-19.
