    Thank you for this. Alas, home health care workers are not the only caregivers affected. Clausen House provides residential, supported living and independent living services, and adult education to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Oakland, CA. We fund our services through state funding and fundraising, but also feel the crunch of the rising minimum wage. The question we often address is “Why should someone work for us when she can be paid the same wage at a fast food restaurant?” Dedication to service by caregivers is amazing, but we still want to ensure that our workforce–the same as home health care providers is well-compensated. Our answer for now is an excellent benefits package. Still, we are concerned about changes in federal financial support for care.
