The Section for Long-Term Care Regulation has published New Generations – Volume 13, Issue 2, Fall 2015. This issue is now accessible on our website. A complimentary color copy was sent via regular mail to each licensed home in Missouri. In an effort to go paperless, we will no longer be printing and mailing a copy; the newsletter will be available electronically.
Please visit health.mo.gov/seniors/nursinghomes/providerinfo.php to view this publication along with a collection of previous newsletters. Please stay tuned for the next publication coming soon.
