If you love to help people, few careers are as rewarding as the long-term care field. This work gives you the opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s life every day. With an aging population, there is more of a need than ever for committed workers in this field. But before you can begin work, you will need training.
No one wants to think they or their family members might be struggling with mental health.
