NAHC is advocating on behalf of home health care and hospice every day, but nothing has an impact on elected officials like hearing from their own constituents, and that is why it is so important for everyone familiar with home health and hospice to become advocates on behalf of our entire community.
You are the Heartbeat of our industry and can be a catalyst for change ensuring access to quality home-based care and services today and for future generations.
Our voices combined together are powerful enough to command the attention of our elected representatives and influence their decisions. Stand with us, add your voice to ours and countless others, and together we will ensure access to the highest quality health care and services at home for all Americans.

NAHC Advocate Spotlight
Manjeet Kaur of Amedisys
The path to becoming an advocate for the home health care and hospice communities is different for every individual who takes part. This week, NAHC is proud to highlight Ms. Manjeet Kaur, BSN, RN, MPH, MSN, CPQH, Area Vice President Regulatory Affairs-Hospice with Amedisys, who recently had the opportunity to stretch her advocacy muscles in our nation’s capital and learn more about how engagement in advocacy and her voice as a nurse can be a powerful means of influence when it comes to legislation.
NAHC extends a special thank you to Manjeet for her efforts in advocacy and working to help protect the home health care and hospice communities.
