ESSENTIAL CAREGIVERS ACT OF 2024 RECORDING AND WEBINAR SLIDES AVAILABLE

Updated: Apr 23


The recording from the April 17th webinar is now available on YouTube. We have also uploaded all the resources to our Texas Caregivers for Compromise website: slides, link to video, authors' one-pager. All those links are at the bottom of this post.

There are a lot of introductions at the beginning if this video so if you want to scroll forward and skip all that, the meat of the webinar begins at about the thirteen minute mark. In other words, the part where I talk through the bill for forty minutes!

The bill is authored by U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), U.S. Representative John B. Larson (D-CT), and U.S. Representative Claudia Tenney (R-NY)

Y'all, Texas has played a very big role in the development of this bill despite being the only state in the country that doesn't actually need it thanks to our constitutional amendment which made Section 35 of the Texas Bill of Rights the right for a long-term care resident to have access to an essential caregiver.

Once the bill is introduced, Genny Lutzel, Stephanie Evans Kirby, and I have an outline ready of some things we can do here in TEXAS to help get our legislators on board and EACH ONE OF YOU CAN BE A VERY BIG PART OF THIS!

Our biggest project won't cost you a dime, just your time and your heart. And, we know how big our hearts are here in TEXAS!

We are Texas Caregivers for Compromise and LOOK, not only are we #notgoingaway but we are working for people in long-term care all over this country!
