Gray Panthers NYC Nursing Home Transformation

Staggering.  Incomprehensible. Since early 2020, almost 200,000 Americans in long term care facilities suffered horrifying deaths due to COVID-19. Additional deaths are coming. The voices of nursing home residents, too often ignored, must be valued and heard to become a catalyst for essential positive systemic change in care.  The pain and grief we feel must be channeled to loving and positive action.  

Joining together, nursing home residents, workers, and families as well as humanitarians, private sector partners, advocates, and policy makers can improve conditions in every long term care residence. We must assure rights – dignity – health – safety – connection – exceptional care – prevention of death, disease and deterioration – and responsible person-centered management. 

Nursing home transformation is badly needed. For this reason, Gray Panthers NYC asks your contributions going directly to raising public awareness of the injustices facing older adults in America’s nursing homes, and the various efforts needed in order to make a lasting change across the nation. 

Please watch our impactful first effort “Honoring Nursing Home Lives Lost” found at the Gray Panthers website .
