A great new website and resource for Virginia debuted this week. VIRGINIA EASY ACCESS – a partnership between 2-1-1 Virginia (public service information source), Senior Navigator (Senior resource) and the Commonwealth.

It has great information – is organized clearly and simply – and appears to be a wonderful resource.

I would direct anyone to the page explaining Legal Rights – and while it is not complete in listing what legal rights nursing home residents have (which are defined by state and federal law) – it is a good start:

So thank you VIRGINIA EASY ACCESS – for creating an easy to use resource. We look forward to watching as you update your content.
