There is a shortage of health care workers and the long term care industry is changing making it more needed.
The population in these settlements is expected to continue to grow as people live longer. That being said, the number of high-paying job opportunities is also expected to follow this growth.
Wages for jobs in the long-term care industry have increased about 20% in recent years due to increased demand, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“As we know and have heard stories of all the challenges we have faced over the past year, we need workers everywhere. But especially in the long-term care sector, because we care for a very valuable asset, which is our seniors,” said Susan Ford, community talent relations manager for American Senior Communities.
Ford says the organization of this event is very efficient and effective, especially at this time of year.
“People are very busy. It’s the holidays. There’s a lot going on. There are COVID concerns. And so offering something like that, I think, is an opportunity for people to window shop to see if they’re interested in changing careers,” Ford said.
Ford also says they offer signing bonuses, competitive salaries, and other perks and benefits.
“It’s something that keeps us competitive. And call attention, because here in Indiana and in central Indiana, we have so many healthcare workers with so many choices, and so we want to be the employer of choice.
The companies are also offering other incentives, including payment for training programs, cell phones with data plans, up to 20% payment for rental housing costs, and an overall pay increase.
