Crisis in Home Care Industry
October 4, 2007
The home care sector of the Employer's Council says the industry has reached a crisis situation. The 15 professionally managed care operators say they can't do it anymore and are no longer taking new clients. Ann Whelan says agencies are getting at least a half dozen calls each day for new service but no new applicants for positions. Whelan says the industry is undervalued by government. She says when people can make more money with benefits at a local coffee shop than providing a key role in the health care system, something is wrong.
