We’ve launched and have some exciting news to share! Be sure to check back to stay up to date.
We’ve released our nine (9) Action Plans outlining specific initiatives aimed at improving quality of life and work of nursing home residents and staff. Special “Action Plan” Coalition Conversations have been scheduled to review each plan’s intended impact. Led by the very committee members who wrote the plan, these events begin on July 19 (with our Chair, Alice Bonner) and run weekly through August and September. Be sure to register!
Thank you to the Michigan Health Endowment Fund for supporting Moving Forward in launching a state team in Michigan to address state nursing home quality based on our 9 action plans. We look forward to getting to work with our incredible colleagues in Michigan!
