Home Care in the Twelfth Federal Reserve District: Snapshots by State

Professional home care workers support their elderly and disabled clients in their homes with activities of daily living. Home care also enables working-aged family members to participate in the labor force. Though it was already one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has shed light on the growing need for professional home care workers and on the challenges of recruiting and retaining workers in the industry.

These Home Care Snapshots provide data profiles of the home care sector in each of the nine states that comprise the Twelfth Federal Reserve District: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

The snapshots offer a look at the need for and growth of the home care sector in each state, as well as data on worker wages and demographics. A snapshot for the United States is also included.
