“Presbyterian Villages of Michigan and our local affiliate in Flint, McFarlan Villages, would like to thank Congressman Kildee for his support for the direct care workforce and older adults. The direct healthcare workforce shortage is a well-documented national crisis. Before the pandemic, Michigan was facing a deficit of 35,000 direct healthcare workers and the pandemic exacerbated this crisis,” said Roger Myers, President and CEO of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan. “Providing care is something to be revered and there is no better training ground for healthcare providers to learn the practice of care than working with older adults. This workforce development program will build a pipeline for direct healthcare workers in the greater Flint area and include a pathway to higher-paying jobs in clinical areas and leadership. We look forward to implementing this much-needed model program and to experiencing the multiple positive outcomes that will result for our community, along with the prospects of seeing it replicated by others elsewhere in Michigan and beyond.”
