Home Care Caucus


Mission Statement

The mission of the New Jersey Legislative Home Care Caucus is to collaborate with a bipartisan representation of members from both chambers (and their staff) on issues related to home health care services. Engaging a diverse group of stakeholders as a resource, the caucus will identify opportunities to support home care services for children, adults, and seniors across the state who rely on access to home care services to live comfortably and safely within their own homes.


The NJ Legislative Home Care Caucus will target policies to support  families while educating lawmakers about the nation’s caregiving crisis.

The purpose of the caucus is to raise awareness about the challenges that family caregivers face and to bring attention to the issues caregivers of all backgrounds face. According to a news release from Dingell, almost 20 million US adults require assistance with activities of daily living due to physical, cognitive, developmental or behavioral conditions, and 53 million family caregivers contribute $600 billion worth of care annually.

The caucus plans to interact with a broad array of stakeholders, including older adults, service providers, paid caregivers, employers, people with disabilities, the long-term care insurance industry, private and public payers, government officials, researchers and technology vendors.

2024 Goals/Initiatives


  • Identifying challenges that limit access to home care services.


  • Workforce issues for home care aides, nurses, and other staff (i.e., shortage, retention, career ladders)


  • Financial support tied to quality and outcomes for all aspects of home care services, including educational opportunities.


  • Data collection and interpretation including, but not limited to, population (and location) of consumers vs. worker shortage, transportation issues, etc.


  • Increasing awareness of home care services and the communities that rely on such services.


  • Affordability issue for individuals not eligible for the Safety Net programs due to income limits such as Medicaid, Medicare, VA, etc. This would include Private Pay.


  • Reviewing processes and regulatory issues surround home care services.

NAHC Fall Advocacy Day 

Washington DC

September 20, 2023

Members of the NJ Home Care Caucus, engaged members and industry friends met in our National Capital to advocate with lawmakers for support of the care-in-the-home community.  It is crucial that we track legislative, regulatory, and policy issues that affect our members to ensure you’re informed of what is on the horizon.

Your concerns are our priority!

Members of the caucus met with members of Congress or their legislative staff to advance issues facing our growing and evolving industry. This was a chance to share our story with legislators, and ask that they back policies to bolster our capacity to continue providing high-quality home-based care to patients and families.

Topics discussed during this visit included:

  • Stopping devastating payment cuts for home health providers
  • Demonstrating the value of the hospice benefit to Medicare
  • Advancing targeted hospice program integrity solutions

Advocacy Day participants found great value in strengthening relationships with their elected officials, as well as networking with like-minded colleagues.

Advocacy is one of our GREATEST member benefits.
