Eldercare Workforce Alliance

HIGN is a member of the Eldercare Workforce Alliance (EWA). EWA is a group of 29 national organizations, joined together to address the immediate and future workforce crisis in caring for an aging America. The group formed in response to the Institute of Medicine's 2008 critical report, Retooling for an Aging America: Building the Health Care Workforce. It represents consumers, family caregivers, the direct-care workforce, and healthcare professionals, and proposes practical solutions to strengthen the eldercare workforce and improve the quality of care.
