NCCNHR Citizen Advocacy Groups

Citizen advocacy groups are groups of concerned citizens who work to improve the quality of care for nursing home residents in their locality, state, or region. These groups can be very well established organizations with budgets, staff people, and offices or can be as small as a group of concerned citizens who meet around the kitchen table to share information and strategize about how they can work to improve the quality of care in their community.

Members of these groups are often people who have had loved ones in nursing homes and are concerned about nursing home residents. Despite their diversity, all of the groups share a commitment to improving the quality of care and life for residents who are in need of long-term care. They may be able to inform you about resources in your state, the quality of care in particular facilities, and the current status of nursing home reform in your state.

Contact information is provided below for the citizen advocacy groups in several states. We hope that the information provided will enable people around the country who are interested in nursing home reform to connect with each other and organize to bring about change for nursing home residents. If you know of other advocacy groups we should add to our list, please let us know!
