Advocacy Day: Workforce Shortage

March 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Do you trouble finding a care provider, a respite provider, a supported  living provider, a primary care physician, a dentist, etc. In the early 1900s, people had large families with 8—12 children.  By the 1950s, families were having fewer children, an average of 5 kids. In the 1980s the average was only 3 children and currently it is 0 – 2 children. As children of the early baby boomers are retiring, the next generation provides a smaller number of people to fill the workforce and as the trend continues it will be even harder to find providers. Learn what we need to do.
