The Foundation of the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (the “Foundation”) is a nonprofit organization established to promote and enhance the profession of long term care administration to and on behalf of the organization’s members.  The Foundation was also created for the purpose of promoting quality care and public protection for the disabled and frail elderly populations. The Foundation carries out its mission through its support of quality improvement initiatives, leadership development and research. Below is a sampling of current and past initiatives of the Foundation:

Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes: The Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign is a major initiative of the Advancing Excellence in Long Term Care Collaborative. The Collaborative assists all stakeholders of long term care supports and services to achieve the highest practicable level of physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being for all individuals receiving long term care services.

National Emerging Leadership Summit: The GW NATIONAL EMERGING LEADERSHIP SUMMIT for Healthcare Administrators in Aging Services is a conference held at The George Washington University. The summit provides an opportunity for Generation X and Generation Y leaders in the field of health and aging services administration to engage in discussions of current best practices with other leaders, meet with representatives of key professional organizations, gain an inside perspective on the legislative process, and explore solutions for attracting and retaining other Generation X and Y leaders. The Summit combines current best thinking and a facilitated dialogue to provide a new perspective for both the participating individual and the broader field.

Culture Change: The Pioneer Network was formed in 1997 by a small group of prominent professionals in long-term care to advocate for person-directed care. This group called for a radical change in the culture of aging so that when our grandparents, parents — and ultimately ourselves — go to a nursing home or other community-based setting it is to thrive, not to decline.  This movement, away from institutional provider-driven models to more humane consumer-driven models that embrace flexibility and self-determination, has come to be known as the long-term care culture change movement.  Our partners and audience are primarily engaged in some aspect of long-term care including long-term care CEOs and administrators, consumers and family caregivers, doctors and nurses, direct care providers, and others who care about, and care for, the aging.
