The dementia care industry is booming, but what you need know about care workers to help them cope with the disease is becoming more and more apparent.
In fact, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the dementia care sector is a lot bigger than originally thought, according to new research from researchers at the University of Leeds.
The study, published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging, found that the size of the care sector grew dramatically in the past 20 years, with a whopping 75% increase in the number of care workers in the UK in the same period.
It is the biggest increase in nursing and midwifery care in Europe, but it has also seen a massive increase in dementia care.
It was thought that the increase in numbers was the result of people going back to work, but research suggests that a significant number of those workers have become disengaged, according the researchers.
So what is a care worker?
They are part of a team of caregivers working to help people living with dementia.
They are also often employed by other health organisations or by social workers, which can lead to the idea that care workers are part-time and have to be supported in their day-to-day work.
It also means that care providers are often expected to be involved in the management of care needs, rather than being their own personal carers.
The team that we have found is incredibly diverse, from care workers working in the home to social workers and nurses, the researchers said.
It shows that the role of carers in the healthcare system has changed dramatically in recent years.
And that is a real challenge, given that dementia is the third leading cause of disability worldwide, behind cancer and stroke.
For many care workers, the job of caring for dementia is an incredible privilege, the report said.
In the UK, the number is estimated to be up to 60,000, but according to the University, there are still around 30,000 care workers.
The new study also found that some of the biggest gains in the sector came from areas like nursing, midwiftery and home care.
They accounted for almost two thirds of the growth in the NHS, and this is particularly true in England.
However, the study said that some areas had seen a decline in the numbers of care work.
This is likely due to the need to recruit nurses, carers, social workers to fill a particular gap, while there are fewer places to train the staff needed for care.
And the researchers also found there is a shortage of care professionals in some parts of the country, due to a lack of trained nurses.
The researchers hope their study will help inform the future of care worker recruitment, which will in turn help to tackle the growing crisis of dementia in the health sector.
The experts from the Department of Health and Care Excellence, who analysed data from more than 2,000 nurses and midwives in England, said the rise in the population of care employees is partly down to the growth of nursing, which has increased from less than 4,000 in the early 1990s to more than 20,000 today.
But the report also found other factors that were contributing to the rise.
These included a reduction in the proportion of nurses working in nursing homes and a rise in nursing home residents who were aged over 65, which led to the overall increase in care work, the authors said.
The authors also found a decline from an average of around 6% in the 1970s to less than 3% in 2015.
This was due to increases in the retirement age, changes in the workforce, and the shift to shorter working hours.
The report is also a warning for care workers who work in the private sector, as it shows that some care workers have not yet found a way to find new jobs, while others are struggling to find employment in the current climate.
The future for care worker recruitsThe report found that while the majority of carework in the country is in nursing, care workers also have a significant role in home care, midwives, social work and care workers from the community.
But it said that it is a challenge for the government to recruit more care workers and to recruit them in the future, as a lack to find the skills required to manage care needs.
“Many of the skills needed to manage dementia care work are not currently being developed by employers, so they do not have a pathway to employment,” the authors wrote.
“Furthermore, many care work is in areas with relatively low unemployment rates and therefore may not be well suited for the current labour market.”
The study also pointed out that care work has also become a lucrative industry for private sector companies, who have been able to raise their wages significantly by taking on care workers on lower-paid contracts.
“The rise in demand for care work by private sector employers has led to a boom in the use of private sector workers,” the report added.
But care workers themselves are facing a shortage in the jobs they need to provide care.
