#60CaregiverIssues

As the caregiver shortage worsens, we propose solutions.

Across the country, families struggle to support their loved ones as direct care workers leave this industry, fed up with the poor quality of these jobs.

In turn, long-term care providers can’t find enough workers, and workers can’t make ends meet. The caregiving crisis has reached its boiling point.

In 2017, PHI pledged to find 60 ways to begin solving this home care shortage—one idea at a time. But we need your help in spreading the word.
