Older adults, home care workers, and Home Care businesses are quickly moving to the center of the healthcare conversation. We know older adults want to age at home and have unique care needs due to comorbidities. We know home care workers are in short supply and are desperately needed on the front lines of the Care Team. We know caregiver retention is at an all time low impeding businesses as they struggle to recruit, onboard, and retain new home care workers.

We must strive to support this workforce with the expectation of quality improvement in care, independent living, and comfort despite health complications.
