Every November, we celebrate Home Care Provider Appreciation Month with dinners and celebrations in counties throughout the state. This year is, of course, very different. With alternate plans including drive through giveaways and Zoom celebrations, UDW will always find a way to celebrate the critical work that caregivers do. But we also want to thank our members for all the times you have answered the call to go above and beyond this year. Whether it was turning out for a rally, or helping hand out PPE outside your local UDW office, or just staying home and keeping your client safe: you made a difference. And your union appreciates YOU!

Call your local office to find out about Home Care Provider Appreciation events near you!
