Anne327,

I had no idea the caregiver turnover rate is so high. No wonder my mother's doctor told me if I hired caregivers they might not show up. Very illuminating. Also very sad. The good news is that awareness has improved, and I hope that will lead to action. Thanks for sharing this information.

Jabber,

I think you nailed it. Employees who are valued and honored last. Those who are not soon turn elsewhere. Thanks for stating this so clearly. I'd love to see the rotten apples work elsewhere. Garbage collection springs to mind.

Now thats just sick! Here, they do such strict background checks it would be hard to do that unless you just turned into a thief.

On the other hand, I've had the honor of meeting some of the
most wonderful people in the world who are caregivers. It's a
difficult job, caring for some elderly folks. Some of 'em hit the people caring for them; some of the residents yell at the
aids and nurses. And it appears to me that most caregivers are
simply awesome humans. God bless those who really try to do
a good job!!!!
