Partners in Quality Legislative visits allow legislators to witness firsthand the quality care and services you provide to older adults and gives them a better understanding of industry issues. Believe it or not, there are legislators who have never been inside a senior living community and don’t have the knowledge of the difference provider settings!
When you decide to host a Partner in Quality visit, LeadingAge Illinois will work with your schedule and the schedule of the legislator to coordinate the details. A typical visit includes a tour of the community, residents and staff talk with the legislator, and your community presents a Partners in Quality plaque to the legislator, which is provided by LeadingAge Illinois.
This is your opportunity to share your concerns with the legislator on issues affecting your community, as well as the entire senior living field. In addition, the visit will continue to benefit senior living providers long after it occurs, by educating legislators so that they can make more informed decisions while in session.
Since the program began in 2006, we have had over 600 successful legislative visits in member communities, which has created and maintained beneficial relationships with legislators!
A visit to a LeadingAge Illinois member community has a strong and lasting impression.
Make hosting a Partners in Quality visit a priority. LeadingAge Illinois staff will coordinate the visit and attend to ensure its success.
