Clare Elizabeth Calvert Whitbeck - Extraordinary Advocate
She taught us how to live and she taught us how to die with dignity and grace, stepping with a sure foot onto that next plane. She helped many along the way. We are grateful for the time she gave us and all who knew and worked with her will sincerely miss her in the days and years to come.


Two New Voices for Quality Care Initiatives!

First: The new Handbook for Voices for Quality Care covers many aspects of long-term care. The Handbook is intended as a guide and reference for Voices Volunteers. We hope that it also answers many of the questions that people entering a long-term care situation and their loved ones quickly face. The Handbook is available in two versions. The Paperback version is $24.53, the eBook version is $4.99. Both have an extensive Table of Contents to take you right to the information you are seeking. Click here to view on

Second: We are finding many nursing homes that have been cited for the same health or fire deficiencies for each of the past 3 years. Click here to view The Coalition for Quality Care exclusive reports listing nursing homes with recurring deficiencies in all U.S. Maryland and Washington, D.C. nursing homes.
