Essential Care Visitor advocated to the New York State Legislature for
the Essential Care Visitor Bill based off of August 10, 2020 Hearings.
Essential Care Visitor hosted an Essential Visitation Rally outside of Governor Cuomo's office in New York City. On September 15, 2020 the New York State Department of Health expanded visitation to include broader definitions of visitors beyond hospice patients.
Essential Care Visitor curated the "TakeOurNursingHomesBack" Rally outside of the State Capitol in New York State. Bi-Partisan support occurred, with major press coverage. We were able to continue the voices of our loved ones need to connect with their family caregivers.
We collaborate with other social media groups, as we believe we are all one. Happy to promote your group on our site, as we get lots of visitors a day - and we believe in connecting ALL of us- as we all listen a little differently.
What began as tele~caregiving support calls in March, 2020 when we were separated from our loved ones, transformed into a national safe space of caregivers coming together to share resources, advocate for essential visitation and continue media outreach.
Our Next Virtual Rally is

One year of Isolation for our Vulnerable is unacceptable. We are not okay that there are Loved Ones who have not been touched and visited by their Families in almost a year. Some of us are in court trying to establish a visitation plan - while others watch their loved one fade out in every video-chat. Staff in the facilities are doing their best, but will never be the bridge~care for sustenance of life that every human has a right to receive.
Please join us on March 12, 2021
We will not let this continue.
We can change this together.
