Efforts are under way to communicate with adult offices that work with assistive care clients through the OLTL program. By bringing caregiving experiences together with voices of our clients and families, BAYADA’s Government Affairs Office has the ability to team up with service offices to fight for better reimbursement, which in turn can help with staff recruitment and retention.
Champions Among Us, a BAYADA quarterly newsletter dedicated to pediatric and adult client family advocacy, will soon become part of Care Connections, and will provide our clients with quarterly updates.
Don’t forget to join Hearts For Home Care at www.heartsforhomecare.com and help a client or family to join as well to become part of a growing group of people who are ready to advocate for a better tomorrow for home health care. An advocacy Facebook page will soon be underway and will be dedicated to advocacy efforts and clients’, families’ and our employees’ activities. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Awards Weekend!
