The 28th episode of our podcast, Disrupt, is now available!
Home health and personal care aides are often referred to as “the eyes and ears” of the U.S. health care system, but they’re still infrequently used in care teams.
Changing that is going to take some hard work and dedicated advocacy, according to Dr. Robyn Stone, senior vice president of research at LeadingAge and director of the LeadingAge LTSS Center at UMass Boston.
Home Health Care News recently caught up with Dr. Stone to learn more about the evolution of care teams and how in-home care aides fit into health care’s future. During the conversation, the noted researcher also shared best practices for recruiting and retention, common pain points for home health and home care providers alike.
Listen to this episode of Disrupt to learn:
— Why care teams often fail to leverage home health and personal care aides
— How providers can improve upon recruiting in a difficult labor market
— What signs suggest in-home care workers are ready to leave their employer
— And much more!
