Workplace Caregiver Challenge and its Impact on Wealth for Women

People are desperately trying to care to care for their loved ones whether they are elderly or young; disabled or able bodied, competent or suffering with lack of capacity. People, mainly women, shoulder most of the caregiving responsibilities at home and find that there is not a lot of support available. A recent Washington Post article on Home Care discussed the dismal state of the home and community based waiver program here in Maryland. On October 21, 2021, I will be participating in an American Bar Association seminar Workplace Caregiver Challenge and its Impact on Wealth where we will be discussing how caregiving disproportionately affects women.
