SURVIVAL COALITION RECOGNIZES CAREGIVERS DURING NOVEMBER AWARENESS MONTH

(MADISON) — The Survival Coalition of more than 30 disability organizations recognizes the contributions of Wisconsin’s caregivers as today kicks off National Family Caregiver Month.

“A majority of Survival members tell us that the direct care workforce crisis and the stress that puts on family caregivers is their top concern,” says Beth Swedeen, Survival Co-Chair. “This month is not only a great time to thank caregivers, but to commit to solutions that will address this crisis.”

Members of the Survival Coalition are represented on the Governor’s Task Force on Caregiving which was appointed this year to address the growing shortage of direct care providers, both paid and unpaid, as well as the impact and needs of family caregivers. Read full Press Release
