Care for Caregivers Virtual Town Hall

May 20, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Tune into a virtual town hall focused on the importance of supporting Illinois’ hardworking caregivers; featuring State Rep. Tom Demmer.

Caregiving is the essential work that allows the entire economy to run, but, for too long, caregivers have not been given the support they need. We want to change this, and we need your help to do it.

Join us for this Care for Caregivers: Northern Illinois Virtual Town Hall on Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 10:00 AM- 11:00 AM (CT).

We will feature the work of those caring for young children, elderly or disabled family members; explain how caregiving is not sufficiently supported by state or national public policy; and hear directly from community leaders.

Moderated by Gretchen Sprinkle (Kishwaukee United Way), with additional panelists: Professor Chris Wellen (Illinois State University), Gretchen Knowlton (AgeGuide), and–most importantly– those most impacted by the challenges of unpaid caregiving.
