Fixing the caregiver shortage: Why these health aides are twice as likely to stay on the job

A partnership between a nonprofit health organization and a community health service program has helped provide enhanced training and more robust mentorship opportunities for home health aids in the New York City area. Results show that those who are a part of the program, many of whom are women and people of color, are more likely to stay in the profession due to the "program's focus on supporting them and helping to frame their work as a long-term career."
