Improving Long-Term Care

It has been almost a year since the initial ban on in-person visitation in nursing homes and adult care facilities and visitation is still extremely restrictive.

CELJ wrote a memorandum of support supporting the passage of New York State Senator Rachel May's bill, that if passed would provide authorization and regulation of visitation of personal care visitors and compassionate care visitors at nursing homes and adult care facilities.

There have been longstanding issues with transparency and communication on the guidance issued to nursing home and adult care facility providers by New York State and the New York State Department of Health. To assist the community, we have compiled a complete guide that includes federal and state directives and guidance, and Executive Orders issued by New York State Governor Cuomo. Access the guide here.
