Why is it so hard to find in-home caregivers?

Home Health Care News recently reported that turnover in home care reached an all-time high of 82%. The article also points out that an estimated 778,000 personal care aids will be needed by 2026. Finding at-home caregivers is even more challenging with competition outside the industry. Amazon (which also owns Whole Foods) has increased their minimum wage to $15 per hour —attracting caregiver talent to a higher paying job.

It’s an uphill challenge finding caregivers, but it can be easier.
