If you have not checked it out already, please have a look at the new NAHC Home Care & Hospice Career Center,a place for agencies and job seekers to connect with each other. Whether you are a home care or hospice owner or manager looking for qualified and caring staff or job-seeker looking to contribute your skills to the industry, you can turn to this unique employment forum and find what you need.
Home care and hospice are the fastest-growing sectors of the healthcare industry and will almost certainly remain so for the foreseeable future. That’s good news for our industry – and America – but the bad news is that there is a well-known shortage of qualified people to work in this expanding field. It is more important now than ever to bring qualified candidates and agencies together because the retirement of the baby boomers has created a looming demographic “silver tide” of people who will need home care for many years to come. The new group of retirees, the biggest in American history, wants to age in place, in their own homes and communities, surrounded by friends, family and the familiar comforts of home.
This promises a big boost in business for home care agencies, but only if they can find the right staff to meet the demands of the new pool of retirees. With help from the NAHC Career Center, agencies can find the right fit to ensure their future and the future health and prosperity of our country and its people.
