Robert Espinoza - It Is Time to Resolve the Direct Care Workforce Crisis in Long-Term Care
Nov 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 66
Hanh Brown / Robert Espinoza

Robert Espinoza works to strengthen the direct care workforce; in his role at Phi, he is the vice president of policy, overseeing research and public education. We talk about how he got interested in aging and long-term care from his own experience of watching his parents age. He tells about who direct care workers are and the essentials they play in elder care facilities. Robert and I discuss the high turnover rates associated with direct care workers, and he provides some ways to mitigate this. We finish by speculating what the direct care workforce will look like 20 years into the future.
