BOSTON, Ma.— Mass Senior Care members continued their focus on building relationships with legislators by attending meetings at the State House on Beacon Hill. The meetings are an essential component of Mass Senior Care’s “Respect & Protect” Campaign, an ongoing effort to educate legislators on senior care issues and cultivate legislative support for funding quality care.

Discussions center around the importance of adequate Medicaid funding, with individual members speaking to the specific challenges they face providing care to residents.  Mass Senior Care thanks all of the Ambassadors and members for attending these important meetings, sharing their personal stories with legislators, and committing themselves to our advocacy goals.
