Your Story Matters

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected both seniors and the staff who care for them — spotlighting the vulnerability of this population and exposing the need for immediate legislative action to protect this community. Your story can help correct this injustice!

Tell Our Stories seeks to humanize the lack of funding and heavy regulatory burden on senior care providers by capturing images and stories of the individuals directly affected by these policies. From frontline workers, nurses and facility managers to residents and families, we want to hear about your story at senior care communities across the U.S. We encourage you to share your experiences and shine a spotlight on skilled nursing and assisted living communities across the U.S. 

Help us save senior care by sharing your story!

You can submit stories directly using the form below or by using #SeniorVoices when posting stories on Facebook or Twitter.
