In terms of the labor shortage, there has never been a time like today. The pandemic has exacerbated a challenge that already was persistent in the home care industry. But now, with demographics, consumer demand and the government’s preference to serve people at home, the needs of the home care field — personal care, home health, palliative care and hospice — are greater than ever.
In a new series, “Workforce,” McKnight’s Home Care will explore the various facets of the problem, how home care is responding to it and the innovation that is propelling the field forward with new and sometimes unconventional solutions. This series will kick off the week of June 6 and continue to run in the months ahead. Don’t miss it!
