The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employee turnover at nursing homes in an average year is 74 percent. With high rates of turnover and not enough new workers entering the caregiving field, the U.S. is deep in a senior care crisis that’s only set to get worse.

  • Amy O’ Rourke, senior healthcare expert, professional care manager, author, The Fragile Years.
  • Susan Chapman, professor, social & behavioral sciences, University of California San Francisco School of Nursing.
