OECD Report Suggests LTC Workers Are Experiencing Lower Job Satisfaction and Increased Strain

Long-term care (LTC) workers are experiencing lower job satisfaction and increased strain post-pandemic, according to an OECD report examining policies in European countries. The report argues that improved wages and working conditions worldwide are crucial to ensure quality care for those in need. It recommends increasing government funding for LTC facilities and wages in the public sector to incentivize privately-owned companies to do the same. Additionally, the report advocates for strengthening training programs, promoting social recognition, and leveraging technology to support preventative health policies, specifically among older populations.
