Home health care industry leaders are emphasizing the importance of advocacy. Caring CEO, Jeff Salter, had a chance to share how advocacy for Caring took the form of a cross-country bike ride in 2021. Jeff covered over 9,000 miles, visiting 50 locations in 20 states to celebrate his company's 30th anniversary.
