Family Councils: For the Families, By the Families
Each month, LTCCC’s Family Empowerment Team hosts a Zoom conversation (streamed on Facebook Live) with family members and advocates discussing issues affecting residents and their families. On the July 27 program, we were joined by family council members who talked about their experiences in family councils, including how their councils were formed, strategies for recruiting members, and more. Check out a recording of that conversation below, and head to our family council resource center for free advocacy materials.
Note: As family members of nursing home residents, you have the right to form and participate in a family council. Nursing homes are required by federal law to provide a private space for council meetings and can *only* have staff in attendance if they are invited by the council.
