"There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers,
those who are currently caregivers,
those who will be caregivers, and
those who will need caregivers."
Aging and Adult-Dependent Care Committee (AADCC)
The Office of Research Services has launched the Aging and Adult-Dependent Care Committee (AADCC). This committee was created through the combined efforts of the NIH Child Care Board and the NIH Health and Wellness Council. Over the next three years, the AADCC will explore, collect information/data, and assess services in order to provide employees with the tools and support systems they need to plan for aging, and for providing adult-dependent care.
If you are currently caring for a loved one, or anticipate caring for someone in the near future, come to a committee meeting and let us know about your needs and challenges. The AADCC will meet at least on a quarterly basis. If you would like to attend one of the meetings, or have any questions, please email Shuntrice Holloman at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are WELCOME!
