Who is your state legislator?

Use this link to determine who your legislators are. Please contact them and let them know that you would like to be a resource for them on issues pertaining to assisted living and personal care. Many legislators need to be educated on the differences and the services provided by Assisted Living Residences and Personal Care Homes. PALA can help you to advocate with your legislators.
