Making Care Work Pay Featured in Upcoming Webinar
Join Robyn Stone, senior vice president of research, for a webinar hosted by the DC-based Long Term Care Discussion Group next Tuesday, October 20 at 11:00 a.m. ET. The policy group meets monthly to share LTC financing and policy information and will discuss LeadingAge’s new study, Making Care Work Pay. The research report was released last month and demonstrates that the single action of paying direct care workers a living wage has the power to reduce staff shortages and turn-over, improve productivity and quality of care, infuse billions of dollars into local economies and offer financial security and independence of care workers themselves.
