BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF CARE
Healthcare Workers Rising is a growing movement of caregivers, clients, and community members who believe in the power of care. Together, we can build a care system that works for everyone - ensuring both patients and workers are able to live healthy, happy lives.
Our care system is broken.
Clients can’t get the care they need:
Over 19 million seniors need long term care care and that number is set to nearly double by 2050 - but there is a massive shortage of workers, leaving the elderly, disabled, and sick anxious about their future. Low-income clients are especially at risk of not getting the care they need due to cuts of Medicaid reimbursements
Workers can’t get the stability they need:
Earning poverty wages, lacking essential benefits such as health care or paid sick days, isolation & minimal training means home care workers are struggling to just get by.
LET’S CREATE A FAIR CARE SYSTEM!
To ensure home care services are of the highest quality, we need to build a strong support system for caregivers and clients, including better training opportunities, efficient job placement, better wages & benefits and clearer career pathways. Healthcare Workers Rising is leading the way, providing the following:
Basic Life Support/CPR Certification classes, Alzheimer’s Trainings, LGBTQ+ Cultural Sensitivity Workshops - we have a range of free trainings for Home Health Aides and Personal Care Aides in Rochester, Buffalo and Niagara Falls. LEARN MORE

We’re working closely with several state agencies to develop a more efficient job placement system - enabling home care workers to find work quickly in convenient locations and enabling clients to find quality services when they need them.
BETTER WAGES & BENEFITS
We’re coming together to fight for better wages & benefits for home care workers - home care workers spend their days caring for their clients but are struggling to take care of their own families on poverty wages and minimal benefits. LEARN MORE
