CareForTheAging.org is an informational resource that aims to foster a deeper understanding about the wide range of career pathways available in the long term care profession and inspire those who are looking for a new career opportunity to become a part of this rapidly growing and exceptionally rewarding field.

The website is Indiana Health Care Association’s workforce development initiative that was launched in 2017 in response to the needs of our members who often wrestle with caregiver shortages. 

In early 2019, CareForTheAging.org  expanded to become a multi-state platform that is now available in 17 states across the U.S. The site showcases the many rewarding career pathways available in long term care to assist our members in recruiting compassionate and dedicated people to the mission of serving the elderly and disabled in the sector.
