Nursing home workers, group home workers and personal care attendants who provide home care services for the elderly and people with disabilities will unite in a candlelight vigil to demand a “Long-Term Care Workers’ Bill of Rights”. The vigil will be celebrated Tuesday at the State Capitol, starting at 4:00 PM. There will be a speaker portion with frontline caregivers, union leaders, elected officials and community partners.
The Long-Term Care Workers’ Bill of Rights seeks to protect workers in the front lines of COVID-19 and to ensure that Connecticut’s long-term care structure is prepared for our next public health emergency.
