Formal and informal caregivers are the bedrocks of a caring society, and they need your help! A Care Crisis is truly upon us. Whether you are an older Iowan, an individual with a disability; a family caregiver; an employer of direct care workers; or member of the business community; you are impacted by too few direct care workers. Whether their title is home care aide, hospice aide, direct support professional, or certified nursing assistant, each and every one is needed to serve the needs of Iowans of all ages and abilities. The crisis we are facing will only worsen over the next few years.
Please consider helping by making a financial contribution to support our efforts to ensure access to quality care and support for direct care workers through education and recognition, advocacy, resources, research, relationship-building between family and paid caregivers, and much more.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
Maribel Slinde, Iowa CareGivers Board Chair
