Emily Chop, of Aspen House Memory Care Assisted Living in Loveland and CHCA District II vice-chairperson, meets with US Representative Jared Polis to advocate for persons with dementia.
Emily Chop met Rep Polis at his first ever "Big Block of Cheese Day" in Ft Collins on May 5, 2015 where he held private meetings with constituents. She explained to him that persons with dementia needed a different type of care and that they weren't able to speak for themselves and would appreciate his support and advocacy in the US Congress.

We're Changing the Conversation
Seventy percent of us will need long-term care after age 65, yet few of us openly discuss care needs and wishes. Care Conversations™ is bringing people together to change this conversation trend. We’re providing information and resources to get people talking with loved ones, health care providers and industry experts. Working together, we can plan and prepare for our future and ensure care needs are met every step of the way. There may be a time when you or your loved one will no longer be able to care for themselves independently. Care Conversations focuses on people and the honest discussions needed to plan and prepare for the future. Finding care may seem difficult or even overwhelming at first. Whether you’re seeking care for yourself, or for a loved one such as a spouse, parent or sibling, Care Conversations can help you every step of the way. Worry less about tomorrow. Start a conversation today.
