New York’s population is aging rapidly, and the state is facing an urgent crisis: we don’t have enough home care workers to care for older adults and disabled people. In fact, New York currently faces the worst home care shortage in the nation. The shortage is only growing worse as our population continues to age, and older adults are increasingly searching for nursing home alternatives. This shortage is dangerous: without anyone to care for older adults and disabled people, our family members are vulnerable.

We need to combat the state’s dangerous home care shortage to keep older adults and disabled people safe, and the way to do it is by passing The “Fair Pay for Home Care Act,” which would raise home care wages to at least $35,000 a year on average.
