Recruitment and retention of direct care workers is one of the largest challenges facing long term care providers across the nation. An increased demand for services due to an aging population and a declining supply of individuals seeking and maintaining careers in this profession are factors responsible for a looming workforce crisis. It will take a significant effort to attract, recruit and retain skilled workers.
IHCA/INCAL is dedicated to supporting our members in their efforts to recruit, train and retain quality staff. Learn more about our workforce development offerings and how they might be of use to you.

The IHCA/INCAL surveyed 295 members on staffing shortages and the data analysis puts the crisis further into perspective.DOWNLOAD THE INFOGRAPHIC
