Senator Abinati mentioned Essential Care Visitors as a needed category for modified visitation in nursing facilities inspired by the testimony of our Founder.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?)v=nluoFVETqM0)...Essential Care Visitor mentioned 1:29:37 to 1:32:24)
The "Personal Caregiver Bill" sits in the Health Committee waiting for passing by the New York State Assembly and Senate. This began on May 25, 2020. This is a result of many families joining our plea through our Petition in May 25, 2020 - continued Advocacy statewide. The Personal Caregiver Bill was signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo on March 29, 2021.
Our hard work paid off.
