California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform (CANHR) is participating in a national effort to restore reasonable visitation to residents in long term care facilities. Simply stated, the harms caused by cutting residents off from visitors have become unbearable. Residents throughout the country are suffering profound social isolation, frustration, and neglect.

The current California state policies may have been partially motivated by the #VisitationSavesLives campaign.  This campaign now advocates for better state enforcement.
