According to a recent USAging poll, direct care worker shortages are threatening the ability of older adults to age well at home. While larger systems change and policy solutions are needed, AAAs are using a variety of innovative stop-gap measures to address workforce shortages and ensure that older adults can receive the services and supports they need.

Learn from a panel of AAA staff who have implemented creative and successful strategies to address workforce challenges. Among the strategies highlighted will be creating new rapid response and community care positions, conducting outreach to potential caregivers and dividing job tasks among multiple workers or provider types.
