Home care providers and consumers will tell their stories to Hillary Clinton


They're joining together to provide quality care. Watch live here on Thursday!

Some of the hard-working women and men who provide home care to millions of people in the United States -- and some of the people they care for -- are meeting Thursday afternoon with Hillary Clinton.

It's a big moment for the Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State to hear their stories in their own words -- how home care workers and consumers have joined together to provide quality care for older Americans and people with disabilities.

Hillary Clinton met with child care workers & consumers in the spring. Now she's meeting with home care providers & those who rely on them.

It's been in the news a bit lately, but you might not yet have heard about the "home care gap." It's sure to be part of Thursday's roundtable, and it's a big deal. Some 19 million seniors need long term care supports and services, and that number is set to nearly double by 2050.

The problem is that only about 2 million people make up the workforce available to care for these older Americans. To make matters more complicated, this gap is growing, because thousands of Baby Boomers are turning 65 every day.

Home care workers stand united for raising wages and providing quality care.

The event is happening in Los Angeles, but you can see it wherever you are. Come right to the front page of SEIU.org at 3:45 p.m. PT (6:45 p.m. ET) on Thursday, August 6, to see a live video stream of remarks and the roundtable discussion.
