Canady: “This year has been a defining time in history and has emphasized the importance of quality care and advocacy for our elderly.” 

KANSAS CITY, MO – Missouri Lieutenant Governor Candidate Alissia Canady has been named a “Leader in Geriatrics” by Swope Ridge Geriatric Center, a non-profit nursing home in Kansas City. The award recognizes former 5th District Councilwoman Canady for her leadership that has improved the lives for seniors in Kansas City with the “Love Thy Neighbor” program and advocacy for residents at Swope Geriatric that improved livability and operational support. When elected, Canady plans to build on her commitment to Missouri residents, advocating for and protecting senior citizens.


Alissia Canady said: “Our seniors are the foundation of Missouri – the generation before us who helped build Missouri. This year has been a defining time in history and has emphasized the importance of quality care and advocacy for our elderly – those who are in need of a true advocate in the Lieutenant Governor’s office that prioritizes their safety and wellbeing. Thank you to the Swope Ridge Geriatric Center for their recognition and good work, day in and day out.”


Canady has worked closely with Swope Ridge to provide stability to the lives of their residents. Throughout Canady’s campaign, she has emphasized the Lieutenant Governor’s responsibility to advocate for senior citizens, and how with COVID-19, senior citizens have not received the extent of the help they need.


Swope Ridge is a long-term care facility that cares for more than 200 senior citizens. Previously, Swope Ridge Geriatric Center has held a banquet for the awards ceremony. Due to COVID-19, award recipients are presented their award individually.
