The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care (Consumer Voice) has long been the nation’s premier advocacy group for nursing home care. The group was founded in 1975 to represent the voice of the consumer at the national level advocating for needed improvement in the quality of service at long-term care facilities. The Consumer Voice seeks to advance public policy objectives, educate consumers with knowledge for personal advocacy, train those who support our nation’s seniors, and promote best practices for quality-care delivery.
The group recently announced the results of its 2010 Governing Board & Leadership Council elections. We are pleased to report that our own senior attorney, Steve Levin, was elected as one of the eleven new members of the organization’s Leadership Council.
This new group of leaders in the field of nursing home care was created as a result of a new governing structure established earlier this year to help move the group toward its next stage in development. The Leadership Council will work to provide advice on all issues related to the organization’s policy and program agenda.
Our Chicago nursing home attorneys at Levin & Perconti are proud of groups like the Consumer Voice that stand up every day to ensure that as many seniors as possible are given reasonable and dignified care when admitted to nursing homes and similar facilities. Unfortunately, as we have been made aware in our many years in practice, the battle to ensure that no senior is abused or neglected is far from complete. Much work remains to be done to hold abusers accountable and to free suffering seniors from the hardship of life in the very worst facilities.
