CQC’s Major Areas of Focus Include: 

  • Bringing Long-Term Care Citizen Advocacy Groups together to advocate for responsible public policies and practices that improve the quality of care and the quality of life for individuals needing long-term care services both nationally and in all states.

  • Promoting and supporting Citizen Advocacy Groups

  • Developing new Citizen Advocacy Groups in states that do not currently have them.
  • Encouraging high, universal standards relating to services, staffing, individual rights, choices of care, location of care, and other important aspects of long-term care;
  • Ensuring strong enforcement and oversight systems on federal and state levels to protect people receiving long-term care services and to assure quality in the delivery of those services
