CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2021 /ENDdresswire.com/ — Dude Roofing expressed their support for Argentum’s Standing with seniors campaign, an initiative to support the release of key funds for senior care providers.
“The Biden administration’s delay in providing these much-needed funds is appalling,” noted Jeff Guy, vice president of Guy Roofing. “The senior housing sector protects our country’s most vulnerable population; during this pandemic, these facilities have been left on hold for months, despite being among the worst affected.”
Provider Relief Funds provide essential assistance to caregivers to ensure residents are safe, healthy and protected. Despite 2 million seniors living in facilities across the country, less than 1% of the money has been distributed to these providers – resulting in more than $30 billion in operating expenses and losses as senior facilities struggle to make ends meet . Dividing this government funding would allow for significant updates to communities — everything from structural maintenance, supplies and equipment upgrades, and operational support.
According to the Standing with Seniors site, the advocacy group states, “More than half of assisted living facilities nationwide are operating at a loss, and many say they won’t be able to continue operations for another year if they don’t get federal aid.”
Guy Roofing is a trusted partner within the senior housing industry, providing critical repairs, maintenance and roof replacements to senior housing across the country. “Every senior housing facility is a family,” Guy continued. “As a third-generation family business, we are particularly interested in the needs of these seniors; this population represents our fathers, our mothers, our grandparents, our own family. We want to show our support for Standing With Seniors and we call on Congress to immediately release Provider Relief Funds.”
