Hearts for Home Care Advocacy Program: We are Stronger Together
Advocacy is simply a word to describe people voicing their opinions on
issues they care about, and helping educate public officials so they can
make informed decisions. When public officials recognize how important
quality home health care is in the lives of so many people, they will be
more likely to create laws and rules that support these services.
As Hearts for Home Care advocates, home care employees and clients come
together to communicate with legislators and regulators about the policy
decisions that affect all of us.
We all have stories to
tell—thousands of them. Each story can help encourage public officials
and the media to give more support to home health care. We just need to
get more stories in front of the right people.
That’s where Hearts for Home Care comes in
your story, you put a face on home health care and give it a voice.
There are many ways to tell stories to help lawmakers better understand
what we do. Every time you send an email or write a letter to your
legislator, or attend a lobby day, you are telling your story.
