Trustbridge Hospice Care, a local non-profit organization, recently hosted a career fair in Boca Raton. As reported by WPTV, the association is looking for positions to help people in palliative care.
Trustbridge Hospice Care organized a career fair to find several vacancies. The job fair was held in Boca Raton.
“We see patients in Broward County and Palm Beach. We take care of nearly 1,800 patients on a daily basis. It’s just one integral thing we need to do for these patients, ”says Deborah Weiner, recruiter for Trustbridge.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that overall home and personal care aide employment is expected to increase 34% by 2029. It is expected to grow faster than any other type of job.
Weiner says patients need hospital beds, supplies, durable medical equipment operators, and staff who can help deliver these materials. “So it’s all very integrated and just important to make sure we have enough staff to make sure these patients are taken care of,” Weiner explains.
“Working at the hospice is a vocation. It takes a specific set of care for that and people who really want to make a difference, ”says RN William Hiers.
