Residents turned away due to staffing shortages

Senior living communities’ staffing shortages are so bad, many report turning away potential residents according to a new survey from LeadingAge
LeadingAge gathered responses from nursing home workers, assisted living workers, memory care workers, and other caregivers. 
The survey found that 41 percent of respondents said they have been unable to admit residents to their senior living community due to staffing shortages. And 25 percent said they had to shut down units, buildings, or neighborhoods due to staffing shortages. 
More than half of those surveyed are solving their staffing problem by filling vacant positions with temporary or agency staff. Those surveyed said certified nursing assistants and registered nurses were the most difficult to recruit for. 
Recruiting new employees is a struggle for many communities, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
