Welcome

90% of Americans (including many of us in Northern New England) want to age at home. Many of us will need the help of paid care workers because our families alone can’t provide all the support we need. Told through the stories of both care workers and their clients, CARE illuminates the daily realities of many care workers, shows the powerful impact they have on the lives of the people they serve and exposes cracks in a system that is poorly serving both.

New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont have a shared geography and a shared future. As our unemployment rates reach historic lows and our older population reaches new highs, there’s never been a more important time to engage in conversation about supporting and growing this critical segment of our workforce.

Meet the documentary film producer and members of the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging.

This event is hosted by NHPBS, The Endowment for Health and the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging.

Explore paid caregiver workforce challenges and solutions for the Tri-State Region. For thousands of older adults throughout New England, paid caregivers are a lifeline. As the supply of worker in our region shrinks, the question we must answer is how can we grow this segment of the workforce to meet increasing demand for care?

Video Description

Care

90% of Americans want to age at home, but many of them have to rely on paid care workers because their families can’t provide the support they need. CARE illuminates the many challenges and deep attachments that can be formed between the elderly and the home care workers they depend on - and exposes the cracks in a system that is poorly serving both.
