Foundation (<a href="https://www.cdf.coop/" rel="noreferrer noopener noopener" target="_blank">CDF</a>) launched the Homecare Cooperative Initiative in 2014. The move aimed to plug co-ops into a more formalised network and connect them to experts. CDF also funded a feasibility study conducted by the ICA Group, which explored on the need to create a secondary homecare co-operative.</p> <p>The results were positive and the ICA Group is currently working on setting up Elevate Cooperative – a secondary co-op to drive growth of homecare co-ops and strengthen individual co-ops as well as the sector. Elevate Cooperative would provide services such as training, marketing and sales business development, back office support, advocacy and group purchasing.</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://www.thenews.coop/157481/sector/health/can-home-care-co-ops-fix-the-usas-broken-care-sector/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Read the rest at Co-operative News</a></p> <p>[<em><strong>Editor's note:</strong> we recently posted a webinar from NCBA CLUSA entitled "Bringing Dignity to Caregiving -- The Cooperative Approach to the Home Care Crisis" along with a full transcript.
