Home Care Pulse Growth Summit
HCAOA CEO Vicki Hoak spoke at the Home Care Pulse Growth Summit last week about how advocacy is the responsibility of each home care provider and why.
The nation is aging and there are growing demands on healthcare, in-home caregiving and assisted living. This societal aging can affect economic growth, patterns of work and retirement, the way families function, the ability of governments and communities to provide adequate resources for older adults, and the prevalence of chronic disease and disability, Hoak shared with attendees.
Due to an insufficient workforce and growing “silver tsunami,” all home care providers need to step up and become advocates for their clients and the in-home care services they provide. Hoak shared tips on advocating well, some upcoming bills worth advocating for, opportunities to join with other providers for advocacy—like National Home Care Advocacy Day and encouraged attendees to remember why we advocate.
