Clallam county has an ever increasing need for elder care. The industry however, is known for difficult working conditions and low pay. Caregiver cooperatives across Washington and the country have been turning this around. By giving caregivers control over their work, they improve working conditions and compensation. Because the caregivers are the owners and set policy for care, the care recipients have direct access to the owners of the company. This creates a higher quality of care for the recipients. Washington already has three caregiver co-ops that have strong reputations for service while creating good jobs. Getting caregiver co-ops started in Washington requires a little more than the average caregiver has on hand. Help Ridgeline bring that benefit to Clallam county with your donation.
