PODCASTS & WEBINARS
A series of educational podcasts on home care cooperatives was developed in October 2016 by the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives in collaboration with the Cooperative Development Foundation through a grant from the USDA Rural Development. The podcasts address common issues shared by home care cooperatives and can be particularly useful for new cooperative members or individuals interested in starting home care cooperatives.
Additional resources for home care workers and developers.
The Cooperative Development Foundation is offered grants of up to $1,000 each to home care cooperatives to attend The Buyers Journey. The four-week workshop examines the decision-making process of prospective clients selecting home care services and job applicants making employment decisions. Understanding the process helps home care cooperatives tailor their communications and outreach to maximize client growth and caregiver recruitment.
