CARR's Donors, Interns and Volunteers articles keep consumers and interested professionals apprised of trending issues in the both the interns and volunteers arenas.
Here is a fabulous person who has not only donated money but much time.
CARR co-founders can tell you what a terrific experience our internship program offers; but, it is more illustrative to hear from our actual interns. Eugene Willis, Jr. connected with us via Linkedin this past fall and volunteered to do file surveillance for CARR on RCFEs in Nevada County.

Volunteer Internship Experience with CARR Fall 2014, Nevada County File Review
While earning our degrees (2007), Chris and I (Chrisy) met in a long-term care policy class. Both of us were conducting research on the assisted living care option for our thesis project. Ongoing, we shared our concerns about how little information was available on this long-term care option and individual facilities. But, it was not until we began reviewing the state's public files that we truly understood the scope of the problem and became motivated to do something.
If you think our work, independence, advocacy and transparency are important, please help us. There are lots of ways to help. Your help and our work contribute to the same end - improving resident care in assisted living facilities, and increasing industry accountability.
