Today, the House Health Innovation Subcommittee passed HB 1319 by Rep. Eddy Gonzalez (R-111). This is one of several ALF bills making their way through the Legislature this session and is the most likely to advance given that it contains many, if not all, of the Agency for Health Care Administration's recommendations.
In town today for a special ALF Lobby Day were FHCA's ALF Vice President Rosemary Carbonelli of Pines of Sarasota ALF, FCAL Committee Vice Chair Steve Schrunk of Countryside Lakes and other ALF leaders. In discussions with legislators and staff related to proposed ALF legislation, these ALF leaders asked them to consider a balanced and enforced regulatory system which supports Florida's ALF model of choice, independence, dignity, accessibility and quality of life.
Hear from Steve Schrunk about the importance of taking action in the legislative process to help lawmakers better understand the role that assisted living facilities play in the long term care continuum and the quality care they are delivering to Florida's seniors.
