Recognizing the 10th Anniversary of Retooling For An Aging America

#TogetherWeCare – Advancing a Well-Trained Workforce to Care for Us as We Age

April 11, 2018 is the 10th anniversary of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) report Retooling for an Aging America: Building the Health Care Workforce. This seminal report led to the establishment of the Eldercare Workforce Alliance (EWA), a coalition of 31 organizations committed to developing practical solutions to strengthen our eldercare workforce and improve the quality of care. To recognize this anniversary over the next year, EWA will lead the #TogetherWeCare-Advancing a Well-Trained Workforce to Care for Us as We Age campaign to examine our progress since the report and share solutions for current and future workforce needs. EWA will collaborate with EWA members and other relevant partners to address specific topic areas each month. Below are themes for the next year that EWA will be addressing for the next year:


Every month we will be sharing blogs, infographics, and other material related to these important topics covered in the report.  Please share our content, and feel free to share your own content around these topics with the hashtag #TogetherWeCare.
