Registration now open for inaugural Home Care Cooperative Conference

homecare conf 500 07a1chomecare conf 500 07a1cHome care worker cooperative members and developers from across the country will gather September 12 – 14, 2016 in Dulles, Virginia for the inaugural Home Care Cooperative Conference. Registration is now open for this innovative conference, organized by the Cooperative Development Foundation and hosted at the headquarters of the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation

While key to keeping seniors and the disabled out of nursing homes and hospitals, home care providers are some of the lowest paid workers in the United States. The cooperative model empowers workers and enhances their working conditions. The goal of this conference is to help existing and nascent home care cooperatives think in terms of systems and collaborations that can improve wages and job satisfaction as well as client care.

Program highlights include the state of the home care industry, best practices in recruitment and retention of caregivers, communicating the cooperative difference to clients and caregivers, and managing human resources issues. The agenda also includes breakout sessions designed for cooperative boards, managers and technical assistance providers. 

The $250 conference registration fee includes access to all conference sessions, dinners and the Monuments by Night Tour of Washington, D.C. on September 13. 

Conference attendees can reserve a room online in the CDF Room Block at the Courtyard Dulles Town Center. The hotel offers complimentary onsite parking. For attendees flying into Washington Dulles International Airport, an airport shuttle service—available upon request—is also complimentary. Please note: the hotel does not offer shuttle service from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
