Personal care aide training essential to quality care

"Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" is the mantra of the moment. News reports and campaign slogans obscure the fact that there is job growth in America. That's because occupations that are growing won't lift workers into the middle class.

Our nation employs at least 1.6 million PCAs, who provide personal care and other support services to elders and people with chronic illnesses and disabilities. These jobs are expected to increase by 70 percent between 2010 and 2020, surpassing 2 million by the end of the decade. more
