The Cape Cod Times recently published a story that discusses the Cape’s declining labor force. The story notes a pronounced shortage of home health and home care aides in the region.
The Cape’s elderly and disabled residents deserve the support of a robust, trained healthcare workforce, regardless of where they receive care: in their homes or in an assisted living, life care or skilled nursing community.
For their part, the Cape’s homecare workers must receive the training, support and career opportunities that ensure them constant employment and quality of life.
The solution to this shortage must be collaboration. Best of Care, Inc. and our industry colleagues want to be active participants in career orientation, training and placement initiatives that unite the Cape’s schools, chambers of commerce, workforce organizations and senior communities.
On Tuesday, March 15, Cape Cod Community College will host an information session for people interested in learning about home health aide careers. The info session will be held at the Hyannis Center, located at 540 Main St, Hyannis.
At this session, Best of Care Inc. will be on hand to answer questions. We will also offer tuition incentives to home health aide students who graduate from CCCC’s home health aide training program, join the Best of Care home health team and complete 100 hours as an employee of our company.
For more information on the March 15 home health aide orientation session and the training program that will begin on March 22, contact Cape Cod Community College Program Coordinator Mary Conklin at 508-375-5010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
