Contact Your State Legislators Today to Ensure Continued Health Services for Assisted Living Residents!
The COVID-19 state of emergency in Massachusetts has allowed assisted living nurses to provide health services to residents – most commonly simple treatments such as insulin injections, oxygen management, eye drops, and ointments. Prior to the pandemic, residents who could not self-administer these services needed a family member to visit multiple times daily to do so or to arrange and pay separately for an outside provider. Residents without family available to provide the services, or the resources for outside providers to visit to administer them, were forced to move prematurely to institutional settings. We want to make sure assisted living nurses can keep providing these services post-pandemic. 

Last week, the Governor filed legislation to extend a few essential emergency orders that were put in place during the pandemic.  Now, the legislature is set to debate what emergency rules and regulations from the pandemic should be continued. We are asking the legislature to permanently allow nurses in assisted living to provide some health services to residents and need your help show them how important this issue is to assisted living. 

Help raise awareness on the critical need for these health services to continue in Massachusetts senior living communities. It is critical that you make your voice heard and contact your state legislators and make this request TODAY! 

Please join us in this effort and encourage other senior living advocates to also take action through the pre-written letter (right panel, or below on mobile).
