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. For a client,
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.
