As the caregiver shortage worsened, we proposed solutions.
Across the country, families are struggling to support their loved ones as direct care workers leave their roles, fed up with the poor quality of these jobs.
When we imagined #60CaregiverIssues, we sought to address one clear problem: the worsening workforce shortage in home care. From February 2017 to December 2018, we unveiled 60 solutions, one idea at a time.
And it worked—we substantially grew our base of online supporters, generated significant media coverage, and inspired policymakers to focus on the range of challenges facing this job sector. The biggest result? Our country seems to understand this problem in a whole new way—as one that affects all of us, and one that can be fixed.
