Thoughts on Improving Caregiving as a Career from Home Care Daily

patient-3793490_1280A recent article from Valerie VanBooven, RN BSN, Editor In Chief of HomeCareDaily.Com, called "New Legislation Seeks to Make Home Care a More Appealing Career Option" outlines a lot of useful data and offers strong points in in a pithy and easy-to-read way.  Moreover, it is an article that I feel a lot of our audience will find valuable. 

As I've mentioned in the past, finding great employees can be tough, as we all know, but keeping them engaged and challenged in their work over the long term can be just as difficult. Along with that is ensuring that there are ways to make Caregiving as viable a career as possible.
 
As usual, I suggest that you read the entire article here, but as a way to get the ball rolling, here's a quick excerpt from the article:
By 2050, it’s expected that over 19 million people will be over the age of 85. Currently, that number is 6.3 million adults. With this increase in the aging population, it is tantamount to ensure that these growing numbers of elderly individuals have access to quality care at home, if and when the time comes.

In the same vein as the above block quote, it mentions the following topics up for discussion as ways to bolster Caregiving as a long term career:

Apprenticeships

Mentoring Programs

On-the-Job Training Opportunities
