Far too often, nursing home reform investigations and reports exclude input from the very people impacted the most by their conclusions: nursing home residents themselves.
On this week’s episode of “Mission Possible,” we pass the mic over to Washington, D.C.-area writer, advocate, and nursing home resident Maurice Miller to learn what he really wants to see from providers, lawmakers, and caregivers as we work to improve the system.
Maurice brings a unique perspective to the “Mission Possible” conversation, and not just because he’s a resident in a dialogue that consists primarily of operators, regulators, politicians, and lawyers – but also because as someone who’s lived in a nursing home since suffering a stroke in his late 40s, he’s still the self-described baby of his community more than a decade later.
The long-term care landscape has much to learn from residents like Maurice, so tune in and then find ways to incorporate his words into your own LTC advocacy.
