2015 Assisted Living Salary & Benefits Report Released

Lindsay Schwartz

Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Service (HCS) has just released the 18th annual Assisted Living Salary & Benefits Report. The report is published in cooperation with LeadingAge and supported by the National Center for Assisted Living.

1,286 Assisted Living communities participated in the study and provided compensation data on 64,362 employees nationwide. 1,153 for-profit and 133 not-for-profit communities provided data for the study.

The report covers 20 management and 29 non-management positions. Data are reported according to for‑profit and not-for-profit status, revenue size, unit-size, state, county, and geographic region. Also covered are 18 fringe benefits, turnover rates by department, and projected salary increases for 2016. Data are effective as of October 2015.

HCS highlights one key finding - that the national average hourly rate of Dementia Personal Care Aides (PCAs) in assisted living communities increased 3.55%. This represents a continued increase from the 2014 figure of 2.50%. Turnover rates for PCAs increased from 34.99% in 2014 to 39.35% in 2015. Average vacancy rates fell from 19.81% to 14.45% in 2015.
