Welcome to The Shape of Care, a dynamic podcast that explores the world of caregiving!
The Shape of Care illuminates the costs, financial and otherwise, of hiring (caregivers), the toll on the caregivers, and the need for a rethinking of a widening hole in the infrastructure of American health care. – Phoebe Lett, The New York Times
Season 2 begins with intimate stories of care workers and the people they care for. But their issues are larger than just one story. We connect these personal and compelling stories to the broader policy landscape – through interviews with nursing home leaders, policymakers, union activists, and more. And we ask: What kinds of long term care policies do we need so that anyone can receive quality, affordable care?
