At its Dallas, Texas headquarters, the Association maintains a Legislative staff focused on understanding changes to regulations, policies, and public affairs mandates. Additionally, our Member Services staff works both internally and externally to coordinate the interests of government and the general public with the needs of our member providers. In that respect, PAHHHA represents its membership to all related public entities at the State and Federal levels.

The main focus is on providing quality care to the nation’s elderly, physically challenged and people with language barriers who are all served by the long term care professionals who comprise PAHHHA’s core membership. Our Providers believe that the individuals whom they serve are entitled to a supportive environment in which professional, quality, and compassionate care is delivered.

This belief compels PAHHHA affiliates and member providers to advocate for individuals who – because of social needs, trauma, or illness – require services provided in a long term care setting, while also advocating for the continuing vitality of long term care provider community.

PAHHHA believes strongly in our commitment to advocate the development of necessary and reasonable public policies which balance economic and regulatory principles to support quality care and quality of life. We are dedicated to ensuring professionalism and ethical behavior among all who provide long term care.

How can we make a difference
Serving as advocates for daily issues that affect and enhance home health and hospice agencies, the Association will not only a repository of information for solutions to common challenges these provider face, but also to facilitate education, training, and best practice strategies to promote quality care and precise implementation of regulations and guidelines.

We will conduct quarterly meetings by inviting recognized leaders in the field to further educate on current topics and changes with home health and hospice guidelines. One goal in our strategy to promote the sharing of ideas will be an annual conference and awards ceremony to recognize the most valuable and innovative home health and hospice providers, employees, and ideas.

Along with goals of providing information services, our organization will actively look to provide home health solutions for refugees and other uninsured patients.  Plans include offering, clinical, dietary, and hygiene education facilitated by our professional staff.  A critical component of the Associations success is to focus on patients who are not eligible to receive Medicaid, Medicare, or other government assistance.

While the challenges regarding appropriate and sufficient health care staff have been well documents, the Association will be active to address these concerns by providing educational assistance for potential nurses, home health aides, and hospice care givers.

We will focus our efforts in this particular initiative on sponsoring qualified students by providing tuition expenses and assistance with other education related costs.

As an alternative to skyrocketing training and certification costs for administrators and nurses, the Association will provide funded or discounted classes for health professionals needing to obtain Continuing Education Units and State required “clock hours”.

In compliance with State regulations regarding language interpretation for health providers, the Association will assist in providing qualified Sign and Language Interpreters of various nationalities and ethnicities.  This facet of our activity, is essential in addressing the needs of communities with large refugee or immigrant populations.
