The U.S. is experiencing a silent crisis of care. Those who need care, ranging from young children to the elderly and people with disabilities, often receive poor care or no care at all. Those who give care to others, and particularly the women who provide most paid and unpaid care, receive low or no wages, few or no benefits, and experience penalties in the labor market. It is time for us to take care of those who give and those who need care in the U.S. The support of relevant national and state legislation requires a mechanism to mobilize the community of experts across the U.S. Take Care Net provides such a mechanism.
