Is a senior caregiving job right for you? Watch these videos to find out
Are in-home senior care jobs the employment wave of the future? The latest figures out of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics signal yes. "Personal-care aides" and "home health aides" are projected to be the first and fourth occupations with the most new jobs added between 2016 and 2026. Both require a high school diploma or equivalent and short on-the-job training.
With Baby Boomers retiring at a rapid rate — one in five people in the U.S. will be aged 65 or older by 2030, according to Census data — and the vast majority desiring to age at home, it's no wonder these jobs are predicted to pour in.
To help give potential job seekers a better sense of the growth, demands and qualifications of available senior care roles, we curated playlists in conjunction with YouTube on the below topics.
