About Eldercare Workforce Alliance
The Eldercare Workforce Alliance is a group of 35 national organizations, joined together to address the immediate and future workforce crisis in caring for an aging America.
The Institute of Medicine, in its critical report Retooling for an Aging America: Building the Health Care Workforce, called for immediate investments in preparing our health care system to care for older Americans and their families. In response, we formed the national Eldercare Workforce Alliance –-representing consumers, family caregivers, the direct-care workforce, and healthcare professionals– to propose practical solutions to strengthen our eldercare workforce and improve the quality of care.
The Eldercare Workforce Alliance is a project of The Advocacy Fund.
Our Mission and Vision
To address our nation’s worsening eldercare crisis, the Alliance will build a caring and competent eldercare workforce, joining in partnership with older adults, their families and other unpaid caregivers – to provide high-quality, culturally-sensitive, person-directed, family-focused care, and improve the quality of life for older adults and their families.
