About LeadingAge California

 

LeadingAge California has represented nonprofit senior living and service providers since 1961. Each year, the association continues to serve, inspire and advocate for our members through multiple channels, providing members with the tools they need to carry out their missions. As the champion of aging services in the state, the association prides itself on its deep relationships both in the Capitol and among its members. The association’s advocacy, educational programs and public relations help its members serve the needs of more than 100,000 of the state’s older adults. Representing nearly 600 members focused on senior living and care – including affordable housing, continuing care retirement communities, assisted living, skilled nursing, home- and community-based care and business partners and residents, LeadingAge California spans the full continuum of care. Whether working behind the scenes, testifying at public hearings, building coalitions, visiting member communities or visiting with elected officials, LeadingAge California actively works to create system changes through advocacy that strengthens members’ viability and supports innovations in the delivery of aging services.

LeadingAge California’s influence can be found in all aspects of the policy arena. Leadership in our strategic goals comes from our highly engaged members, who help shape the future by developing public policy, hosting elected officials in their communities, writing letters, providing testimony in public hearings, meeting with legislators and participating in advocacy events at the Capitol.

LeadingAge California works diligently with state regulators and regulatory offices to keep members abreast of critical regulatory issues and changes, as well as to insure that the interests of LeadingAge California members are represented in the decision making processes that occur in all areas of state government.
