In 2017, PHI began identifying the most pressing policy issues facing direct care workers.

Our research, unique industry expertise, and partnerships with state and national leaders aptly

position us to address a worsening concern: direct care workers are walking away from

this sector at a time when we need critical supports to age in our homes and communities.

In turn, families and the agencies that serve them are left with few options.

60 CAREGIVER ISSUES. ONE IDEA AT A TIME.

Recognizing a growing workforce shortage among our nation’s home care aides, nursing aides, and personal care aides, as well as the need to provide quality care to a rapidly growing population of older

people and people with disabilities, PHI launched a national campaign:
60 Caregiver Issues.

      Over the course of two years,
PHI will release a new issue every 2-3 weeks, inspiring policy makers and

long-term care leaders to pinpoint what needs to be done to remedy
this shortage and create a vibrant,
sustainable system of long-term care.

     Our staff experts have the ideas.
What we need is your support.

ABOUT PHI

PHI works to transform eldercare and disability services. We foster dignity, respect, and independence for all who receive care, and all who provide it. As the nation’s leading authority on the direct care workforce, PHI promotes quality direct care jobs as the foundation for quality care. Drawing on 25 years of experience working side-by-side with direct care workers and their clients in cities, suburbs, and small towns across America, PHI offers all the tools necessary to create quality jobs and provide quality care. PHI’s trainers, researchers, and policy experts work together to:

  Learn what works and what doesn’t in meeting the needs of direct care workers and their clients, in a variety of long-term care settings;

  Implement best practices through hands-on coaching, training, and consulting, to help long-term care providers deliver high-quality care;

  Support policymakers and advocates in crafting evidence-based policies to advance quality care
