Action

We believe receiving care inside of the home is a pathway for independence and optimal health for our loved ones.  Join Family Eldercare in fighting for change.

      • Professional caregiving is the fastest growing industry in Texas. However, the system that regulates in-home caregiving is failing both those who receive care and those who care for them.
      • State and federal regulations make it harder to recruit caregivers or provide people on a fixed income the quality of care they deserve. And trouble getting reimbursements from Medicaid, combined with unexpected disruptions like a global pandemic, make the economic realities of receiving care at home nearly impossible. Given these challenges, it is clear change needs to happen now.
      • Together we can hold lawmakers accountable for creating smart policies that support those receiving services and the Professional Caregivers who care for them.
