A new era of staffing challenges is here. COVID-19 presented the world with many uncertainties, but one truth remains—the only way to ensure quality resident care and the success of your organization is a stable, engaged workforce. Join us for a discussion on how COVID-19 has shaped the state of senior care both today and for the future.
During the webinar we’ll discuss:

  • The current state of staffing in senior care and how COVID-19 will continue to influence the future of the workforce
  • Best practices for recruiting from the newly created talent pool of displaced workers
  • Strategies for better communicating with and supporting staff during these turbulent times
  • Plus, we’ll share real-life examples of the tactics senior care providers are adapting to meet this new way of life.
