The demand for long-term care workers has steadily increased over the past  ten years and is projected to continue to rise in the next 30 years. As the demand grows in our sector, the numbers of individuals entering the field continues to decline. This disparity is causing a workforce crisis across the country. There are states and regional pockets that are experiencing the crisis to a greater degree than others. Kansas is not immune. It is the number one concern of providers in both urban and rural areas of the state.
