Advocacy

Quail Park Retirement Village and Quail Park Memory Care Host Assemblymember Mathis

For those who haven’t participated in grassroots advocacy before, it can seem daunting. But once you step into the advocacy arena, the experience can be fulfilling for both you and the elected official.

That’s what Jeff Moyer, executive director of Quail Park Retirement Village, discovered this year. This past July, Moyer attended CALA’s Day in Your District for the first time. He was the only CALA representative in the meeting with the office of Assemblymember Devon Mathis (R-Visalia). He made such a connection that Assemblymember Mathis visited his community less than a month later.

According to Moyer, Assemblymember Mathis toured both his community and Quail Park Memory Care Residences nearby. “He spent two hours with us, and even got to try out the new iN2L (It’s Never 2 Late) system in our memory care community.” According to the iN2L website, it is a computer system “built on a picture-based, touch-screen interface that allows users to simply ‘touch’ their way” to find online content and engage with family and friends across the internet.

It looks like Assemblymember Mathis was impressed by the services available to residents, and Jeff Moyer has built a solid foundation for what will hopefully continue to be a strong relationship.
