SWLTCWA - Please let us know how the Workforce Crisis impacts you!

WLTCWA Members and Friends:

Wisconsin’s direct care workforce crisis is leaving people with disabilities and the elderly without needed care.

People across the state can’t find personal care workers, job coaches, respite workers or therapy aides.  To end the crisis, Survival Coalition, the Wisconsin Personal Services Association and the Workforce Alliance need your help.  We want to tell lawmakers how the workforce crisis is impacting real people. 

Please use the link below to answer a simple survey about how the workforce crisis is impacting you:

Once you take the survey, please share it with other people!

Do You Use Personal Care?

The Survival Coalition, along with Wisconsin Long-Term Care Workforce and WPSA, want to hear from people who use personal care. 

Many people around the state can't find personal care workers to help them. Other people want to hire people they know and trust to work for them. Advocacy organizations are in need of your help to gather more data on this workforce. Thank you in advance for your support. 

We want to hear from you!

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey below by Tuesday, March 1. Your information can help us tell lawmakers how to make personal care better for the people who use it.
