Workforce Development

Building a strong workforce for Indiana’s seniors

Developing a skilled workforce for the long term care profession.

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.
