Texas Caregivers for Compromise is sharing short videos of our experiences and how the changes in Texas regulations, statute, and our constitution have made a difference in our loved ones lives OR WOULD HAVE had those changes only been made in time. These videos are in support of newly filed H.R.8331 by Congressional U.S. Representative John B. Larson (D-CT), and U.S. Representative Claudia Tenney (R-NY) and S.4280, the companion bill filed the the Senate by U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX).

Angela Reynolds submitted our first clip. Her daughter, Amber, lives in an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) in Texas for persons with intellectual disorders. Specifically, Amber lives in a State Supported Living Center (SSLC) which was one of the most difficult types of facilities for residents during isolation protocols since the acreage prevented window visits and because virtual visits are nearly impossible for people with intellectual disabilities to comprehend. Many times, attempts at virtual visits resulted in self-harm and combatitive behavior among special needs residents.

We hope our legislators will see these clips but what is even more important is that our community of constituents encourage Congress to support this important legislation to prevent forced isolation in the future and the devastating effects of those protocols.

We are Texas Caregivers for Compromise and we are #notgoingaway.
