Nicholas A. Oliver, Executive Director, Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care

NAHC and the Forum of State Associations encourage you to ask your members of Congress to accompany your agency on a home visit. This is a compelling way to inform Congress about the importance of home care and hospice for the ill, aged, and disabled. A prominent example of how effective these visits can be, Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), chair of the Senate Aging Committee, has said that accompanying a home care visit was a transformative experience and made her a passionate advocate for home care and hospice.
