The United States is significantly unprepared for the strain anticipated from an aging population on the healthcare and senior living system. This is especially true regarding workforce requirements and the necessary support systems, both formal and informal. The shortage of workers, especially healthcare workers, has been exacerbated by the pandemic, with long-term care facilities facing particularly acute challenges. 

Join VALA for our Inaugural Senior Living Summer Workforce Webinar Series, June through August 2024, where each month different speakers present topic areas providing information and guidance to address the growing workforce crisis. At the end of the series, an informational toolkit will be available for registrants and VALA members to put into action and to have as a printable and electronic resource.

The Basics: Understanding Senior Living Related Legislation & Regulatory Actions
Virginia had substantial legislation that went into effect on July 1. The question is: which bills and guidance impact senior living as it pertains to assisted living? The second session of VALA’s summer workforce series will provide an engaging and comprehensive overview of senior living specific legislation as well as information on the regulatory changes occurring within several of Virginia’s agencies.
