THE RIDERWOOD CHAPTER IS NO LONGER ACTIVE.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN LEADING A RIDERWOOD CHAPTER, PLEASE CONTACT FRANK ALTRICHTER BG427

 

Mission Statement:  The principle purpose of the Maryland Continuing Care Residents Association (MaCCRA) is to protect and enhance the rights and financial security of continuing care retirement community (CCRC) residents while maintaining the viability of the providers whose interests are frequently the same as their residents. MaCCRA is a statewide organization focused on improving the status of residents of continuing care retirement communities in Maryland, largely through legislative action in Annapolis. Many Erickson Living retirement communities have chapters. Riderwood Village chapter officially started on 9-30-13 with over 20 dues paying members.

Let your voice be heard by joining the Riderwood Village chapter of the Maryland Association. Dues are $20 per person or $30 per couple. Dues to MaCCRA are tax deductible. See application below.

 

Please join us and bring a friend. Hear about the visit to Annapolis and our representatives. Also hear about the joint meeting of MaCCRA chapters that will be held right here at Riderwood later this spring.

Here is a status update from Erin Shea (Legislative Assistant) as of March 1 2014:
Nothing has been scheduled yet in terms of further discussions or hearings. However, since its companion bill in the House, HB271, received an unfavorable report, it’s unlikely that anything will come of the bill this session, even if it were to pass in the Senate. That being said, Barbara and Dan are working on a strategy for next session and the feedback I received fromMaCCRA members regarding their meetings with legislators on Senior Day was mostly positive. It seems as though the outcome this session was based more on the subcommittee that the House bill was assigned to than any overwhelming opposition to the bill by legislators. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything definitive regarding the fate of the Senate bill.
