For over 36 years, CANHR has worked to improve the choices, care and quality of life for California’s long term care consumers. Through direct advocacy, community education, legislation and litigation it has been CANHR’s goal to educate and support long term care consumers and advocates regarding the rights and remedies under the law, and to create a united voice for long term care reform and humane alternatives to institutionalization.
CANHR is not a government agency. We are funded by membership donations, foundation grants, and publication sales. To continue our work, we need the support of people like you who are unwilling to ignore the abuse and loss that the elderly and disabled in this state suffer in long term care facilities. Please take a stand with us against abuse and neglect.
