New Survey Shows Dire Impact of Wisconsin’s Direct Care Workforce Crisis.

Mental Health Task Force/ Make It Work Milwaukee Update

Wisconsin is experiencing a crisis level shortage of direct care workers, as reflected in the results of a new direct care consumer survey released yesterday by the Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Groups. These workers, including personal care, home health and therapy aides, make it possible for people with disabilities and older adults to lead safe, healthy and independent lives in the community. See the press release and Survey fact sheet. Documents can also be found on the Survival website: www.survivalcoalitionwi.org
