Homecare

The fastest growing sector of the healthcare industry is home healthcare. As the costs of acute care grow, many of our elderly and their families prefer the comfort and familiarity of home care. Our skilled and devoted home health aides and attendants have joined together in 1199SEIU because it is the strongest, most effective home care union in the United States. Together we fight for a living wage and healthcare coverage, while continuing to build skills and train for increased responsibilities as caregivers, better able to serve our clients — often round-the-clock — in their homes. 1199SEIU, the strongest, fastest-growing and most effective healthcare union in the country, now represents more than 63,000 home care workers throughout Florida, Washington, DC, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New York.
