Update: Jane Gross emailed me on the Fourth of July to enthusiastically invite “your readers — direct care workers, supervisors or anyone else” to contribute to her blog. This is a great opportunity to talk to long-term care consumers and family members about the challenges and rewards and importance of direct-care work. Maybe we can raise a little consciousness, even recruit some valuable allies for the quality care through quality jobs movement. — Elise
A new blog by New York Times health writer Jane Gross (pictured) provides a fascinating window into the world of family caregivers, including their thoughts about direct-care workers.
