home instead

Home Instead, a local home health care provider, hosted a hiring event recently to help strengthen its tight workforce.

Home health care providers are seeing an increase in business at the same time they are struggling with staffing shortages.

According to the Global Coalition on Aging, the worldwide population aged 65 and older is projected to more than double from 703 million to 1.5 billion by 2050, and the demand for caregivers is increasing for home health options.
