Tell Us About How Home Care Impacts You — Storytelling is one of the most influential ways of expressing your thoughts and feelings. Tell us about the importance of your home care services and the effect it has on your and your family’s life. Want to show a real slice of life from your perspective? E-mail us a video of yourself or your loved one receiving services.
Share your story.
Connect with your legislator — We can help facilitate different ways for you to connect with your state’s lawmakers. An in-person meeting at your representatives’
local district office or
state capitol office is a great way to connect with the people who create home care legislation.
Inviting a legislator to visit your home is the most powerful way to demonstrate the importance of home care services. You can also send
emails and letters expressing your feelings and concerns.
Participate in Lobby Day — Attend a pre-planned industry lobby day in your state capitol. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in advocacy activities which may include legislator visits, group discussions, photos, and more. You may even be asked to speak and share your home care story.
Attend community events — Be sure to check out any local advocacy events throughout the year.
Use social media to spread our message — Connect with Hearts for Home Care on social media and share our posts to help spread our advocacy message. Feel free to create your own as well!
