January 20, 2011

The State of the Long Term Care Workforce is third in our series on The State of Long Term and Post-Acute Care. Today’s statement features the pipeline of dedicated, caring staff who commit themselves to serving those patients and residents who need them every day. Among the highlights:

  • By 2050, 6.6 million caregivers will be needed to care for the 27 million Americans who are projected to need long term care and services.
  • Despite the economic downturn, long term care facilities offer an ever-growing, rewarding and stable career.
  • Career ladder programs and education training programs engage employees, enhance the workforce, and reinvest into the long term care community.

Get the full picture in today’s one-pager. In communities across America, nursing homes and assisted living communities offer a secure and rewarding career for unemployed and dislocated workers. Do you have a story to share? Tell us about it in the comments section.
