Schedule a Face-to-Face Meetings with Your Members of Congress
Advocacy in August Tips for Success

Scheduing a meeting with your elected officials are one of the best ways to be a home health advocate, while building a positive relationship with your lawmakers and asking for their support for home care and hospice in the communities they represent.

Below are tips on how to set up a successful face-to-face meeting with your elected officials during the August recess:

  • Contact the local office of your Representative and Senators and  ask to speak with the scheduler and/or the person who handles Medicare issues. It’s a good idea to speak with both.
  • Request a face-to-face meeting over the summer recess.
  • Organize other home care and hospice providers and advocates from  the district/state to attend the meeting with you.

NAHC Members Urged To Participate in Fundraising Performance Information and Best Practices Survey

NAHC is joining with the Visiting Nurse Association Health Group of New Jersey in urging NAHC members to participate in a brief  - approximately 10 minute -survey about your agencies’ stand-alone or system home healthcare and/or hospice fundraising program.

The purpose of the survey is to identify baseline fundraising performance information as well as begin to define fundraising “best practices” within the home healthcare and hospice sectors. 

There are dramatic changes underway in healthcare policy. Reimbursement and consumer preferences are all shifting from the acute care setting to home, hospice and community based care. Just as your agency is preparing for these changes, so is The Visiting Nurse Association Health Group of New Jersey under the leadership of their new president and CEO Dr. Steve Landers and fellow members of the National Association of Home Care & Hospice (NAHC).
