Bronx Care Progress

Attend the Bronx Care Congress to learn about the Caring Majority’s campaign to make care affordable to all New Yorkers. Community-based, long term care is the fastest growing sector of healthcare. However, while New York’s goals are aligned with community based care, our state has no plan for how to effectively provide for this increasing demand.

Our policies and programs have yet to catch up with our population’s changing realities, and as a result, our families are struggling. Those of us who cannot pay out-of-pocket for care are often sent against our will away from our homes and communities to nursing homes; our families are spending down generations of savings to pay for care for our loved ones and grappling with increasing caregiving responsibilities; and the people we often rely on to care our family members struggle to get on by poverty wages.

 

It’s time we change the way we provide care for our loved ones. Join the Caring Majority!
