Share your long-term care stories!
As part of our public relations and advocacy efforts, we are always looking to amplify the voices of the direct caregivers and staff working in our settings and the residents we serve. Providing real world context for the impact of public policy is much more valuable when it comes directly from those doing the work or receiving the care. And we know that storytelling is a much more interesting and effective means of influence. So, to that end, we’re putting the request out there early to all of you—if you know of a caregiver with an exceptional career story, or someone who is passionate about their brand of caregiving, or a staff member with a unique perspective on our profession, we want to know!
This could be a staff person that’s new to the profession, but highly engaged and motivated to advocate for the profession; or it could be a more senior staff with a ladder climbing, career progression story. Likewise, if you have an outspoken resident living in your setting, someone who enjoys engaging and talking with others about their life and the lives of others in their community we want to know! We’re hoping to leverage your connections to cultivate a team of long-term care influencers who can be the trusted messengers for our profession. Please reach out to Nicole Mattson at the Association office with your stories and for further information.
