April launched the Eldercare Workforce Alliance’s #TogetherWeCare Campaign, a year-long celebration to commemorate the 10-year-anniversary of the release of the National Academies’ Retooling for an Aging America Report. The Eldercare Workforce Alliance (EWA) focused on advancing innovative solutions to preparing the healthcare workforce to care for older Americans. This month, we were pleased to have the following blog posts launch our first month of the #TogetherWeCare campaign:
- “Ten Years Later” by Nancy Lundebjerg and Michele J. Saunders, EWA Co-Conveners
- “What a Fight For Home Care Worker Protections Taught Us” by PHI’s Robert Espinoza
- “Healthcare Systems and the Community in Partnership” by Hartford Institute of Geriatric Nursing’s Tara Cortes
We also lead a Twitter storm for the kick-off of the #TogetherWeCare Campaign that reached the triple digits in member and partner participation, generating 276,839 total potential impressions. This was such a great start to the launch of the campaign and we look forward to continuing this momentum as we share materials about the workforce that cares for us all as we age!
May kicks off “Geriatrics Training” Month- join us in a Twitter chat on May 9th!
Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older American’s Month. In recognition of this and as part of our #TogetherWeCare campaign, EWA will be partnering with ACL and HRSA for a Twitter Chat on May 9th at 2 p.m.
Stay tuned for more information on the #TogetherWeCare campaign through our weekly updates, monthly newsletters, and our social media presence @eldercareteam.
