Industry Initiatives

ASHA and Argentum jointly wrote a letter to Congress on COVID-19 Paid Medical Leave Legislation and we encourage our members to do the same and reach out to their respective Senator about this issue. We urge Congressional leaders to recognize the unintended consequences of this provision and provide an exemption for the senior living workforce (those working in IL, AL, MC, and CCRCs) to ensure our residents are able to receive the care they need. If you would like to write to your Senator, please click the button below for a sample letter template.
