A report released by Home Instead in collaboration with Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA) is the first comprehensive study into the current state of the global caregiving workforce and the challenges it faces for the future.
The global report — Building the Caregiving Workforce Our Aging World Needs — explores the essential truths that must shape the actions of policymakers, healthcare organisations and professionals, NGOs and other public and private stakeholders when they consider the future of the caregiving workforce, and our ability to more effectively serve older adults around the world.
Among the report’s findings were:
The rapid and impending increase of the older global population,
The heightened desire of older people to remain in their home,
The need for a change in perception when it comes to Caregiving as a career.
Along with highlighting the state of play, the report also outlines the key actions needed to build the caregiving workforce needed by our ageing world.
