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.

The National Academy of Social Insurance (the Academy) recently released a comprehensive study of viable approaches for states interested in pursuing universal LTSS, paid leave, and child care policies. 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.
