Caregivers are the backbone of our community. Sacramento care providers are the first line of defense in keeping our seniors safe and healthy in their own homes. It’s an essential human right to receive care in a setting of one’s choice. In-home care providers empower our community’s older adults and people with disabilities to have that choice. But the infrastructure for long-term care in Sacramento County is in crisis. Last year, over 2 million authorized care hours went unused—leading to countless individuals going without the essential care they need. Sacramento County must take decisive action in order to attract and retain caregivers—ensuring that we’re prepared to meet the County’s exploding demand for care.
It’s time to support our local care providers with a $20 wage floor!
Caregivers protect and support Sacramento County Seniors, it’s time for Sacramento County to support Caregivers.
