We're coming into the final stretch, and we expect that in the next week or so we will start seeing actual legislative proposals for health care reform.

After a brief recess for Memorial Day, Congress is returning this/next week for what will be a grueling month of legislative activity. As we must keep the pressure on them, AFA is participating in another Congressional Call-In Day on Thursday, June 4.

On Thursday, June 4 beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern, please call toll-free to (866) 281-7219. The system will ask you to say your state name and then transfer you to one of your Senators. When you get through, tell your Senator that inclusion of long-term services and supports in health reform is a must for individuals facing dementia, their caregivers and families.

We hope you will forward this email to others. Please note: phone lines are open only on Thursday June 4 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time.
