Strengthening California’s Care Infrastructure: Pathways to Universal Long-Term Care, Paid Leave, and Child Care

Our country’s care infrastructure has not kept pace with society’s changing needs. The challenges of caring for older adult family members and children are growing for both low and middle income families.

In this panel, the presenters will report the Academy study panel’s findings and the discussants will speak to the implications of this research for policymakers seeking to strengthen the care infrastructure for Californians.

Bay Area: Aging into Poverty: Ensuring Seniors’ Golden Years Remain Golden

Currently, one in five seniors in California is living at or below poverty – the highest rate in the country. With the demographic changes underway in the State, the challenges of senior poverty are likely to increase even if this rate remains unchanged. The Governor presents a promising opportunity to addressing senior poverty with the Master Plan for Aging, but more is needed to fill the gaps. Where can philanthropy support policy and programmatic strategies showing promise? How can cross sector collaboration reduce economic security challenges?

Join this event to better understand how funders can respond to the senior poverty crisis upon us. With thoughtful strategy and cross sector collaboration the existing levels of economic insecurity and racial inequities specific to seniors can be reduced.
