Aging Services Workforce Now!

Support Immediate Action for the Aging Services Workforce

Aging service providers across the country know all too well that the workforce crisis continues to have a devastating impact in most care settings—and on the access older adults have to the quality care and services they need. There is no single solution to the unprecedented workforce challenges; it will take a variety of policies, solutions, and new ideas to drive meaningful change. 

LeadingAge is urging immediate action from the federal government to support our nation’s aging services workforce in a coordinated advocacy campaign, Aging Services Workforce Now! We’re knocking on doors across the federal government to raise awareness, drive urgency, and deliver the first-hand member stories that paint a powerful picture for our nation’s leaders. And we’ll back all that action with a smart PR strategy that elevates our positions with influencers across the country.

The campaign's grassroots efforts will include virtual congressional visits and state-level coffee chats, a series of workforce Action Alerts calling on members and advocates of older adults to easily contact Congress and the Administration, and a national Day of Action.

We invite you—and everyone who cares about older adults —to unite in a strong advocacy push for immediate action to address the crisis in access to essential care and services. Together we’re fighting for the desperately needed federal support for aging service providers. Without it, more quality providers will be forced to make difficult decisions that further limit or remove available options for care older adults need in communities across the country.
