As the Biden Administration prepares to take over, their first order of business will be to get the pandemic under control, but it will also work to strengthen home-based care.

During his campaign, the President-elect outlined a $775 billion plan to overhaul the nation’s caregiving infrastructure. Biden said he hoped to create upwards of 3 million new caregiving and education jobs over the next decade, while likewise creating pathways for former caregivers to re-enter the workforce.  His plan also called for a $450 million increase for senior care.

“Biden hasn’t just highlighted his appreciation of home-based care in broad strokes and policy promises. In addition to his $775 billion plan, the president-elect has repeatedly brought attention to very specific, innovative programs that typically only industry insiders know about.
