65 million people. That’s more than the total populations of California and Texas, combined. And it’s the number of family caregivers in the US who, day in and day out, do the incredibly important but undervalued work of caring for aging loved ones or people with disabilities. Now hear what caregivers themselves say they need.
Calling all writers and bloggers! We are extending an open invitation to participate in our third #Blog4Care, in honor of National Family Caregivers Month in November. The topic? What caregivers need most.
At the beginning of October, Caring Across Generations held the first-ever Home Care Workers Rising Summit in St. Louis, MO, bringing together home care workers and care consumers from all around the country. The following photos and stories are from some of the Direct Care Alliance members who attended the summit.
On Saturday, October 18, Caring Across Generations and our partners across the country held a nation-wide Care Canvass. In more than a dozen cities, hundreds of home care workers and seniors talked to thousands of voters about the need to strengthen our home care and long-term care systems, as well as support home care workers in their call for fair wages.
“These new regulations are a historic step forward toward a future in which our families and communities can be supported by a strong and stable care workforce," said Ai-Jen Poo, Director of National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-Director of Caring Across Generations.
Hundreds of home care workers from California to New York and from all sectors of the industry gathered in St. Louis the past two days for a historic summit on the future of care. The Home Care Workers Rising Summit was convened by Caring Across in partnership with national labor unions, consumer and disability rights advocates, to focus on the growing national movement for quality care.
During the first-ever Home Care Workers Rising Summit, four individuals — three home care workers and one care consumer — will be recognized for their dedication and commitment to providing quality care and improving the lives of both care workers and care consumers.
Next week, on Monday, October 7, Caring Across Generations will be bringing together home care workers from all around the country and from all sectors of the industry at the first-ever Home Care Workers Rising Summit.
Caring Across Generations Co-Director Ai-jen Poo was selected as one of the Class of 2015 MacArthur Foundation Fellows.
