The Livable Community Caregiving ad hoc Committee was formed in May 2016 to address the shortage of caregivers, both formal (such as Certified Nursing Assistants, Certified Medication Aides, Restorative Aides, Homemaker Health Aides) and informal (uncertified aides, many times a spouse, child, or neighbor who provides basic care in the home).

We are seeking others interested in creating ideas and solutions to help solve the caregiver shortage. The Caregiving ad hoc Committee would like to identify the needs of caregivers in our community and take action on how to address those needs.

The group typically meets bimonthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm in Room 202A of the Johnson County Health & Human Services Building, 855 S. Dubuque Street, Iowa City. If you are interested in joining the Caregiving Committee, please attend a meeting or contact Johnson County Social Services at 319-356-6090.
