How Wellspring is responding to the COVID-19 virus

 

A Voice for Our Elders

As part of a statewide advocacy effort led by LeadingAge Michigan, Wellspring president and CEO, Dave Gehm, was asked to provide testimony on February 24, 2021, to the Health Policy Committee for the House of Representatives in Lansing. Gehm is a trusted voice when it comes to our seniors, as evidenced by his leadership both at the state and national level through LeadingAge.

Since last March, Wellspring has been advocating at the local, state and national level on behalf of residents, staff and families. Our message at that time was geared toward securing testing and personal protective equipment; and then late last spring, as COVID-19 cases began to drop, we began to passionately advocate for our residents to be able to see you —their families and loved ones.

LeadingAge Michigan and Gehm were invited back for a second day of testimonies on February 25, but this time to the House Oversight Committee.

This moment is the culmination of countless meetings, calls, letters and emails through advocacy efforts with LeadingAge Michigan, as well as families who are advocating on behalf of their loved ones.

Our collective voices need to be heard, and this is a big step forward.
