Fox 5 News – State officials: Senior Nevadans not getting basic care visits due to worker shortages

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — Health officials said many seniors across Nevada are not getting basic daily care in their homes due to the shortage of health care workers, despite the state paying for many home visits.

The crisis of a shortage of health care workers in Clark County prompted a summit Thursday between county officials and Nevada Senior Services about how to solve the problem on a local level and bring more workers to the Las Vegas Valley.

“This is a wave that’s crashing on our shore. We have a situation where the shortage of personal care in the state of Nevada is made worse by a higher demand as a result of COVID, and a reduced workforce as a result of COVID,” said Jeff Klein of Nevada Senior Services.
