Today's eldercare leaders face significant challenges that impact the health of their facility, its staff, and the residents it serves.

As a leader in eldercare, tackling obstacles is part of both the reward and challenges of the role that you have in caring for and engaging with older adults. The global pandemic has widened these industry challenges and deepened the crisis that the United States is facing today: a rapidly aging population with mental and behavioral health needs that will require more human resources than are currently available.

We are a nonprofit organization on a mission to help enrich the lives of older adults and those who support them by improving continuity of care—one of the ways we accomplish this is through focusing on equipping staff with necessary skills training that allows for them to confidently care for and engage with older adults, at every stage of the aging process.

99% of nursing homes and 96% of assisted living communities are currently facing a staffing shortage in the U.S.

We take a comprehensive approach to addressing the workforce shortage by addressing the core reasons behind why staff are leaving your facility.

Unlike many of the training programs on the market today—our skills training program focuses on more than just meeting a compliance standard or checking a box for staff training. We focus on helping your facility first understand where you are today with staff and resident satisfaction and tailor a skills training program to the unique needs of both your facility and it’s staff. Our skills training program is an immersive, virtual training world led by a live, certified instructor that helps prepare your staff with the necessary skills needed to confidently care for and engage with older adults, at every stage of the aging process. 

Recruitment efforts, alone, are not enough to remedy the unique challenges that face long-term care facility leaders today.

Skills Training is the key to truly unlocking the workforce shortage problem.

Our evidence-based skills training program is the secret key to creating an environment where your direct care staff feels confident and fulfilled when caring for and/or engaging with older adults—resulting in increased satisfaction for not only your staff, but also your residents and their families. 

3 clear signs that your facility needs a skills training program that is focused on improving continuity of care.

Many leaders think that their existing training program is meeting the needs of their staff, residents, and their facility—However, they still find themselves struggling with staffing shortages. If your facility is facing these challenges, the Engage with® Older Adults Skills Training Program can help your facility overcome them.

A high staff turnover is a very clear sign that your facility isn’t leveraging a skills training program that equips your staff with the necessary skills they need to confidently perform their job. This is often the primary reason that direct care staff leave within their role within the first six months of employment.

Your facility is experiencing a 60% or less staff or resident satisfaction rating

Staff shortages require you to lean even harder on your reliable nursing staff members to fill the gaps and ensure patients receive care—However, this is likely causing decreased staff satisfaction and higher burnout among your direct care workers. Resulting is higher vacancies rates for direct care roles.
