    Help with the Domestic Employer Survey


    This is the first-ever statewide study of employers of attendants or home care providers, led by experienced researchers at UCLA and Cornell and supported by Hand in Hand: The Domestic Employers Network, Senior and Disability Action of San Francisco and others.


    The study is designed to increase our understanding of:

    • Who domestic employers are, including people with disabilities and seniors who hire attendants through IHSS or private-pay (demographics, etc.)
    • What domestic employment practices look like (contracts, pay, etc.)
    • What barriers people with disabilities and seniors face to getting their needs met, i.e. affordability of support/care


    There is a lot to learn about who domestic employers are and what struggles they face in getting home and community based services.  We all agree that supports should be affordable and available to all people with disabilities and seniors, and we hope this survey will provide needed information for us to work together to that end.


    Would you be willing to participate in the survey?  Would you be willing to help get the word out about the survey?


    We’d love to survey you in person. The survey takes about 30 minutes and is completely confidential and anonymous. Survey participants can be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card. Any person with a disability or senior who has hired an attendant or home care worker in the past month and is over 18 years old can fill out the survey.  Please contact Katherine at 415-572-2274 or movingthrufire@gmail.com to set up a time.


    If it works better for you, the survey is also online in English, Spanish, or Chinese.  Here is a link to the survey:http://bit.ly/homecaresurvey.


    If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate contact Katherine Please do let her know if you will be able to help us with the survey. She looks forward to working with you on this project!
