By 2030 9 million Californians will be over the age of 65. That's 3 million more than there are today! This unprecedented growth in the senior population is driving a skyrocketing demand for long term services and supports (LTSS), yet we see increasing evidence that paying for these services is bankrupting middle class seniors and their families throughout the state.

The event will include a panel discussion with state legislators on the challenges that seniors and people with disabilities face when seeking affordable long term care and the caregivers who provide these essential services.

Food, childcare, Spanish interpretation and other accommodations will be provided.

The 9/19 event is hosted by the San Francisco Care Council, including UDW/AFSCME Local 3930, SEIU Local 2015, Caring Across Generations, the California Domestic Workers Coalition, SF Family Caregiver Alliance, Senior and Disability Action, California Foundation for Independent Living Centers, and Hand in Hand: Domestic Employers Network.
