Beginning in 2011, long-term care workers in Washington who provide services to the elderly or persons with disabilities in residential settings must be certified as home care aides. Estimating the current supply and future demand is difficult because these workers are not currently credentialed by the state. This project uses data on the number of Medicaid clients and facilities using home care aides to estimate current supply, and with estimates of the state’s population growth to 2030, projects the future demand for home care aides in Washington.
