The Workforce Crisis

We heard you. LeadingAge knows the workforce crisis in aging services is real and requires action on many fronts. There is no single solution to unprecedented workforce challenges, but we work alongside our members to develop and advocate for a wide range of solutions to ensure America’s older adults and families can get the care and services they need.

Workforce Policy Updates

Too many older adults and their families face challenges in accessing essential care and services to remain independent, safe, and healthy because of a lack of qualified workers. LeadingAge urges and works for immediate government action – keep up-to-date on our federal advocacy with our weekly updates.

Student Program Portal

The LeadingAge Student Program includes opportunities for students to learn about rewarding careers in aging services. Right now we’re accepting applications for the 2023 Summer Enrichment Program, a 10-week immersive internship hosted by a LeadingAge member organization. Click to learn more!

Opening Doors to the Aging Services Workforce

LeadingAge understands the urgency of your workforce needs. That’s why we expanded our Opening Doors to Aging Services initiative to explore potential employees’ perceptions of aging services and how best to talk to them about jobs in our sector.
