WEBINAR: The Changing Landscape of Assisted Living – Developments in the States

Free Webinar

When: Thursday, July 31, 2014 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT

How good is assisted living? To a great extent, it depends on what state you’re in, as assisted living standards are dependent upon state law. This presentation included the results of a 12-state study on assisted living laws.

Also, hear from advocates engaged in state efforts to improve assisted living through the legislative process – California, where the RCFE Reform Act of 2014 is moving through the state legislature; and Connecticut, which has revamped its assisted living regulations to improve resident health and safety. The presentation also will announce a new California-focused reform project.

Presenters:
Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney, National Senior Citizens Law Center; President, Assisted Living Consumer Alliance
Tony Chicotel, Staff Attorney, California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform
Nancy Shaffer, Connecticut State LTC Ombudsman

About Justice in Aging

Justice in Aging is a national non-profit legal advocacy organization that fights senior poverty through law. Formerly the National Senior Citizens Law Center, since 1972 we’ve worked for access to affordable health care and economic security for older adults with limited resources, focusing especially on populations that have traditionally lacked legal protection such as women, people of color, LGBT individuals, and people with limited English proficiency.
