High Staff Turnover
The cycle of staff turnover in long-term care facilities is not just a managerial headache – it comes at a substantial cost. On average, training a new care aide can cost up to 30% of their annual salary, not to mention the indirect costs associated with the time it takes for a new care aide to become fully competent in their role. But the ramifications extend beyond the balance sheet. A constantly changing team disrupts continuity of care. Residents in LTC facilities thrive on consistency and the trusted relationships they build with their caregivers. High turnover rates fracture these bonds, potentially compromising the quality of care and overall satisfaction.
We understand the issues that lead to high staff turnover in long term care:
Caregiver burnout being the most common.

Coordinator of Volunteers
Preparing care aides for the emotional demand of their role prevents early turnover. A good onboarding experience builds the foundation for high staff retention.
