The Nursing Home Committee consists of social workers employed in various long-term care facilities in New York City, public proprietary and voluntary auspices, as well as representatives from consumer organizations and the New York City Department for the Aging. The NASW-NYC Nursing Home Committee holds quarterly meetings over the program year. One is an annual meeting to discuss Nursing Home Surveillance conducted by Federal and State regulatory agencies with a focus on social work’s role. A second annual meeting is a joint meeting with the NASW-NYC Gerontological Social Workers Committee to review long-term care policy and practice issues. Other meeting agendas include the goal of improving social work practice and working with consumer groups in terms of client advocacy.
