Congress will be voting soon on President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package. Unfortunately, this legislation does not include help for seniors and caregivers in long-term care and assisted living communities. We need your help to contact Congress and ask them to prioritize seniors who are most at-risk of COVID-19.
Argentum, the leading national trade association serving companies that own, operate, and support professionally managed senior living communities, is urging all residents and their loved ones, along with caregivers and other advocates for senior care to join us in an effort to send thousands of letters to lawmakers on the critical needs of senior living communities. These messages will underscore that communities have been on the front lines of the pandemic for nearly a year to keep those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 safe. But urgent help is needed with unprecedented expenses for PPE, testing, infection prevention and control, and much more. Congress needs to act to keep these communities as the top priority.
Taking part in this campaign will help raise awareness on the critical needs of senior living communities.
Please join us in this effort and encourage other senior living advocates to also take action through these pre-written letters (right panel, or below on mobile). To send a letter:
- Enter your contact information to be matched with your legislators.
- Edit the pre-written letter to share your story, such as the name of your community.
- Click "send message." Your message will automatically be sent directly to your legislators.
Thank you for joining us in this important effort.
