It’s Careers in Aging Week!

Careers In Aging Week; Workforce
​This week is Careers in Aging Week (CIAW), a week dedicated to bringing greater visibility and awareness to the wide-ranging careers in long term care and aging services and to celebrate current employees in the profession. A perfect way to celebrate Careers in Aging Week is to amplify your hiring efforts! 

AHCA/NCAL recently launched “Careers in Caring,” a national campaign to equip long term care providers with the resources they need to successfully recruit new caregivers to the field.

Careers in Caring has a dedicated website,, where providers and professionals can find a one-stop-shop of resources and tools to support their hiring efforts. The campaign is research-tested, with proven practices to reach potential candidates. The website houses:
  • A content guide to help you talk about the long term care sector and the benefits of choosing a career in the industry.
  • Pre-drafted content that you can post on your own social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. You can copy and paste this content directly or edit it to fit your needs.
  • Informational handouts for job fairs or open house events.
  • Common questions and answers about working in long term care.
  • Photos that depict different types of long term care careers.
  • And more!
While CIAW is officially March 26-April 1, any week can be CIAW! How you participate needs to work for you, so feel free to choose what works best! You can also visit for more CIAW resources, and use the hashtag #CareersinAging to share how you’re celebrating. Happy Careers in Aging Week!
