Webinar: Recruiting, Retaining Caregivers During COVID-19

On April 14, a panel of top owners and operators in the seniors housing industry discussed how to incentivize and motivate caregivers as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. A recording is available here.

The webinar addressed ways in which the industry can overcome the frontline staff shortage, a problem that’s been exacerbated by coronavirus:

  • Data from a Kare survey* about caregiver/frontline staff shortages during COVID-19 as well as panelist anecdotes about what’s going on with staffing in their communities and how the survey data matches up with their experience.
  • An open discussion about coronavirus cases panelists have had in their communities and how their staff responded. Lessons they’ve learned in treating residents with COVID-19 and what the industry needs to understand.
  • With stimulus checks just starting to hit peoples’ bank accounts at the same time their tax refunds are hitting, the panelists relate their experience about staff no-shows and the prospect of caregivers staying at home.
  • Hiring opportunity available from disruptions in the broader labor market

*Owners and operators can participate in the aforementioned Kare survey, which advocates for policy changes on the state level to help with staffing shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic.
