The Low-Wage Trap of Healthcare Aides and the Job Vacancy Crisis in Elder Care

Who will care for America's growing aged population in the coming decades? Today on the podcast, we're speaking with PHI, a New York-based nonprofit organization that works to improve long-term services and care for the elderly and those with disabilities by focusing on the job quality of those providing day-to-day hands-on care—low-paid home health care aides and nursing assistants.    
By 2060, the number of Americans over the age of 65 will be 1 in 4 and the number of those aged 85-plus years (the oldest old) will triple, according to the Census Bureau. This population will live longer with chronic, complex diseases as well as neurological disorders, such as Parkinson and Alzheimer diseases. Who will care for them all?

Today on the podcast, we’re speaking with Stephen Campbell, the data and policy analyst at PHI, a New York-based nonprofit organization that works to improve long-term services and care for the elderly and those with disabilities by focusing on the job quality of those providing day-to-day hands-on care—low-paid home health care aides and nursing assistants.
