A recent post on the NPDA listserv confirmed what we believe to be true about the effects of the economy on home care.

— From the NPDA listserv …
Hey everyone, I’m wondering if others are experiencing this as well –
In the last 6 months I have had basically 0% turnover in caregivers. This is not because I’ve lost hours, actually hours have slightly increased over that time. In fact, I’ve experienced NEGATIVE turnover, in that old employees that had left for one reason or another are slowly trickling back in and asking to be re-hired. It’s saved a bundle on recruiting costs; at least that’s one bright side for me in the down economy.
