by Amy Baxter
The shortage of home health aides in the industry is no secret, but the exact pace of demand will far exceed the supply of health care workers over the next few years, according to a new report from Mercer.
The number of new job openings for home health aides by 2025 is expected to reach 423,200, a growth rate of 32%. While that high demand is supported by other research, the expected workforce gap will also hit negative-446,300 workers by 2025, according to the report from Mercer, a human resources consulting firm.
