Our statewide coalition wants to hear from caregivers about issues in the workplace, resources you need and solutions you may have, like:
- Education, training and credentialing
- JOBS for caregivers
- Respect and recognition in the workplace
- Wages and benefits
- How to sign up for health insurance and Federal premium subsidies available to do so
All are welcome! Target audience includes family/unpaid caregivers and professional/wage-earning caregivers serving persons who are elderly and/or those with disabilities; caregiver advocates; agency staff. Care recipients and family members are especially urged to attend.
Brokers and HealthCare Guides will be available to help people make appointments for health insurance and to describe Federal premium subsidies available to caregivers who qualify.
And, New Mexico State Senators Richard Martinez and Carlos Cisneros, and Representatives Debbie Rodella and Tomás Salazar have been invited.
