Celebrating Careers in Aging Week

Join SDAHO in promoting the Diverse Career Paths in the Field of Aging. This year’s Careers in Aging Week is March 26 – April 1, 2023. Hosted by the Gerontological Society of America and observed by businesses, clinics, coalitions, organizations, universities, colleges, health care providers and other parties across the world with the goal of bringing greater awareness and visibility to the wide-ranging career opportunities in the field of aging.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: PROVIDERS/ORGANIZATIONS

  • Host a facility tour. Open your doors to the community and host a facility.
    tour for local students, parents, and teachers to showcase the day-to-day
    operations in your facility.
  • Visit your local schools and talk about careers in aging. Informing the
    next generation about the opportunities in this profession is critical to meet
    future workforce needs.
  • Participate in job or educational fairs. The overall goal of these events
    should be to spark the interest of students and give them a sense of what a
    career in aging is all about.
  • Plan a community celebration. Community events can be organized by
    local businesses, Chambers of Commerce, economic development groups
    and more. Talk to your community partners about how to best organize a
    celebration.
  • Contribute to the conversation on social media. Share how you’re
    celebrating and showcasing careers in aging on social media using the
    hashtag #CareersInAging. Ask your staff, ‘why do you love to work in the
    field of aging?’ and share their story on social media!
  • Host a virtual event. Offer an easy way for your community to engage,
    learn more, and ask questions about the career opportunities available in
    your organization.
  • Celebrate your staff. Host a party to celebrate/thank your staff members,
    and invite families of staff, residents and their family members. Recognize
    your staff for accomplishments, like tenure or outstanding customer service.
Help raise awareness of the diverse career paths to provide care and services for
our aging population. Opportunities abound in universities, senior living communities, hospitals, long-term care, assisted living communities, and other workplaces.
