Welcome to The Shape of Care, a dynamic podcast that explores the world of caregiving through storytelling and information-sharing. In our first season, we met family caregivers and paid care workers, creators of innovative programs, and care activists who organize nationally to mobilize care workers and implement a progressive national care agenda. And we explored the impact of the pandemic on unpaid caregivers and paid care workers.
We’re now gearing up for Season 2 and plan to launch in January of 2021. In this new season, we take you inside a nursing home that’s designed on the “household” model of care. You’ll meet 94-year-old Rose, and the Certified Nursing Assistant who helped her survive COVID. And you’ll learn about how Washington State is a model for supporting caregivers! More info on the way, so stay tuned!
