How Will You Meet The Future Demand For Home Care Workers?

Much attention is being focused on how home care companies will meet the growing demand for quality home care workers. The U.S. Dept. of Labor states the “employment of home health aides and personal care aides is expected to grow by 69%-70% from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations”. 

 
Deane Beebe, Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute Media Relations Director, writes “the demand for home care workers will grow from the 3.3 million employed in 2010 to 1.6 million new positions projected by 2020”.
