Private duty home care providers treat those who are unwell, disabled, elderly, or recovering from an illness or injury and enable them to remain safe and comfortable at home. Whether the care delivered is skilled (nursing) or unskilled (light housekeeping, errands, and companion care) their importance to one’s health and well being cannot be overstated.
Unfortunately, the private duty industry faces caregiver shortages and high turnover rates, and also has difficulty finding qualified candidates. Without caregivers, you can’t serve your clients and your agency won’t grow. Your agency’s ability to provide quality care could also be compromised.
If these are challenges faced by your agency, come to the 2017 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo where you will learn staff recruitment and retention strategies, and gain valuable feedback from peers who had similar issues. There is also a special add-on preconference session about private duty on Sunday, October 15.
