Arizona Assisted Living Homes respond in disbelief and anger with Arizona’s SB1293 preposing even more Inspections

Were in a state of Repair, Rebuilding, and Healing, we need support and respect from our local government organizations like Arizona Department oh Health Services. Stop shutting us down for uneccesary enforcements and work together to better the lives of our local vulnerable population -says a local ALH Operator

Arizona has already lost 200+ Assisted Living Homes mostly due to Covid-19, Fear of AZDHS Surveyors, and we what believe Harsh and Unnecessary Enforcements and Revocations by AZDHS. The Arizona Department of Health Services should be working with our Industry to protect and serve our Aging Population not displace them.
