Caring for Older Adults
The United States is facing a crisis: a rapidly aging population with mental and behavioral health needs that will require more human resources than are currently available. In addition, the existing and future workforce lacks access to the skills training necessary to work effectively with this expanding demographic. Experts maintain the U.S. must make significant changes and invest in the development of the older adult workforce in order to protect its economy. MHAMD's Engage with™ skills training program is an important resource to prepare for the influx of this aging older adult population. The program provides critical training that will help employers retain their workforce while improving the skills of both professional and family caregivers.
