America’s greatest generation deserves our support.

The health and safety of our seniors should be our top priority.

Caregivers in nursing homes and assisted living communities are courageously fighting to protect their residents from COVID-19 – but without proper government support, our nation’s greatest generation and those most vulnerable remain at risk.

In this unprecedented time, everyone must rally around long term care residents and staff. We need proactive policies that provide adequate testing, personal protective equipment (PPE), staff support and funding to help nursing homes and assisted living communities battle the pandemic and prepare for the future.
