Chiropractic Celebrates 125 Yrs, Schedule Ahead, Childcare Tips & What Resilience Looks Like

It has been 125 years since Dr. D.D. Palmer performed his first adjustment in 1895. Since then, chiropractic has developed as a profession with currently 19 chiropractic schools across the United States and is becoming increasingly legitimized within the medical system, along with other modes of alternative medicine, like acupuncture and massage. Chiropractic holds promise for the future in pain-management alternatives to dependency on opioids and other pharmaceutical interventions.

Child care FAQ

I can’t find child care, but I have to keep working. What can I do?

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act requires certain employers to offer paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for workers caring for a child whose school or place of care is closed (or child care provider is unavailable) for reasons related to COVID-19.

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is also available to individuals traditionally ineligible for unemployment benefits. Loss of access to child care due to COVID-19 is a valid reason for a PUA claim.

What child care options are available in my community?

Child Care Aware of Washington operates a free statewide referral line to connect families with vacant child care slots.  Call 1-800-446-1114 or visit the website. You can also find information on DCYF Child Care Check.

Some local school districts are planning to offer child care when school opens so we recommend them as an additional source of information about child care options.
