Engage Nursing Home Resident Families in Visitation Advocacy – Draft Letter Now Available!

As many nursing home residents continue to struggle under current restrictions on family visitation, LeadingAge NY is asking members to connect with resident families and encourage them to advocate with us for a more thoughtful and reasonable approach to reopening visitation. To help engage families in this advocacy, we have drafted a visitation letter template, which can be filled in and sent to Governor Cuomo within minutes.

Family members and loved ones of residents can click here to email the Governor and follow these simple steps:

  1. Fill in/edit the highlighted portions of our visitation letter template.
  2. Fill in the online form.
  3. Copy and paste the visitation letter into the “Message” portion of the online form.

Please share this message and contact information with family members waiting to see their loved ones and encourage them to contact the Governor TODAY!
