Filling the Care Gap

Foreign-born nurses and personal care assistants make up an increasingly significant percentage of workers in the field of long-term services and supports (LTSS) around the world.

Three new research reports from the Global Ageing Network and the LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston present a profile of foreign-born LTSS workers, explore global migration patterns and policies, identify the benefits that foreign-born LTSS workers bring to their organizations, explore the challenges associated with hiring these workers, and present strategies to successfully address those challenges.
