Join the National Council on Aging (NCOA) for Part 2 of their Public Policy webinar series to learn about the ongoing efforts in Congress to tackle the direct care workforce crisis. As the pandemic has shown, the demand for direct care far exceeds the available supply of workers across the nation, creating a significant challenge for care recipients and direct care workers alike. Without a robust direct care workforce, families and caregivers face additional pressure to provide care that is often inadequate for the complex health needs of older adults and persons with disabilities. In this webinar, attendees will discover how NCOA is taking action to address this issue, as well as hear from members of Congress.

This webinar will take place on Thursday, May 25 at 2:00 pm ET.
