2019 Caregiver Recruitment Trends and Insights


Bobby Morelli; Vice President of Sales; HealthHire; Chicago, IL

We’ve collected data from more than 100,000 caregivers nationwide to deliver new insights that will transform recruitment strategies in 2019. Executives understand that the war for caregiver talent is here. Now it’s time to act. Companies that don’t compete won’t survive. Join us for an action-packed session to uncover the latest trends in job search and get under the hood to better understand a caregiver’s psyche, including the impact of wages, benefits training, the interview process, and your local market.

Designing for Baby Boomers: When You Say “Lifestyle, You've Said it All"


Randy Bremhorst; Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc.; Appleton, WI

If only two words could be used to articulate the dominating trends in the senior housing market, they would be “integration” and “innovation.” Baby boomers are different than past generations in their demand for these two elements. They have a certain level of expectation for quality in all aspects of their care, and they know what they want. This presentation will explore how senior housing has moved away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach and how baby boomers are leading the way forward.
