Turning Long-Term Care Into a Long-Term Career

In this episode of the Tradeoffs podcast, hosted by health policy reporter Dan Gorenstein, Gorenstein explores whether innovative career pathways designed to upskill long-term care workers into higher-paying healthcare roles could address the U.S.'s looming healthcare workforce shortage. Social Finance's work to develop sustainable healthcare career pathways in Massachusetts and elsewhere is mentioned in the episode.  

"Career ladders and lattices alone, regardless of who pays for them, will not be enough to fill the up to 8 million jobs needed to care for our aging population in the years to come ... But people in the field all say career ladders would help. And for individual workers, it can be huge."
