About the Campaign

Our mission is to make nursing homes better places to live, work, and visit.

The Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign is a major initiative of the Advancing Excellence in Long Term Care Collaborative. The Collaborative assists all stakeholders of long term care.

The Campaign helps nursing homes improve the quality of care and quality of life for the more than 1.5 million residents of America’s nursing homes by:

  • FREE tools and resources to support evidence-based quality improvement programs
  • Establishing and supporting an infrastructure of Local Area Networks for Excellence (LANEs)
  • Strengthening the workforce
  • Improving clinical and organizational outcomes

Support the Campaign through membership.
