Governor’s Nursing Home Quality and Accountability Task Force in Dayton Tuesday

The Ohio Governor’s Nursing Home Quality and Accountability Task Force chaired by Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) Director Ursel J. McElroy will be in Dayton on March 21 for two listening sessions. Governor Mike DeWine signed an Executive Order on Feb. 24 creating the task force to study issues surrounding quality of life and quality of care in Ohio’s nursing homes and report its findings. Task force members will visit communities between now and May to meet directly with nursing home residents and their loved ones about their experiences. The task force is scheduling community listening sessions and will conduct regular meetings to discuss public input and formulate recommendations on improving quality of care and quality of life in all Ohio full-care nursing facilities.

The first Dayton listening session on the morning of March 21 is now full so a second community listening session is scheduled in Dayton 1-3pm on Tuesday, March 21, at the Sinclair Community College Conference Center Charity E. Earley Auditorium, 444 W. Third St., Dayton. Pre-register to attend on the Task Force website to share your experiences and thoughts. Ohioans unable to attend the in-person events but wish to make their voices heard will be able to provide their insights on the task force webpage.
