A challenge of any business is the retention of employees. High turnover rates require a business owner to constantly train new workers, and does not allow time for the employees to build knowledge and trust over time. This challenge is greatest perhaps in the Home Care business. Caregivers are quitting en-masse, with Benchmark reports showing that caregivers’ turnover rates in elderly care hit an all-time high of 82% in 2019.
2020 was a disruptive year, bringing many simmering social issues to a boil. With the Covid-19 pandemic as a catalyst, many topics sprang to the forefront, gracing newspaper covers and dominating the national and global conversation. As the pandemic progressed one of the major issues that needed to be addressed became abundantly clear – the population aging and the ability of states and communities to properly care for their older citizens.
Do you ever sit and wonder, where has the time gone, boy am I getting old. Chances are, if you are sitting in a developed country, that you share this feeling with anywhere from a fifth to a third of your country’s population. The world’s population is getting older, and people are starting to notice.
Caregivers, coordinators, owners, executives… No matter the name, rank, or role, a professional in the home care industry could always benefit from using technology. Technology can not only increase operational efficiency and profit margins but also improve the quality of service to clients.
In long-term care, it is important to address your clients’ needs, whether those are physical, emotional or social. It can be quite common for older clients to live away from family members and rely on you, their care provider, to provide them with everyday support.
With Covid-19 changing every way the world works, it makes sense that we also change the way we care for older adults members of our society. In fact, 80% of covid-related deaths in the US are older adults.
The end of World War II brought an age of prosperity for the United States, and along with it the baby boom, a generation that saw the largest number of college applicants and the most significant entry of manpower into the workforce. By 2030, the entire baby boomer generation will be 65 and older, and seniors will make up almost a quarter of the entire U.S. population.
