Professionals are needed in the rewarding field of aging

During Careers in Aging Week, DHS is proud to spotlight several employees that work in the rewarding field of aging. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Georgia has the ninth fastest growing 60 and older population and more than 20% of Georgia’s population will be age 60 or older by 2030. Because of this, the need for those who work in the aging field is in high demand. 

Our Division of Aging Services is in need of experienced workers in Adult Protective Services, or APS. The search for people who work to prevent elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation is ongoing and always essential. These positions are perfect for people with caring hearts and strong minds who are ready to advocate for vulnerable adults. There are numerous APS opportunities available statewide here.

Follow along on our DHS Facebook page throughout the week as some of our employees share what it’s like to work with older adults and why they feel called to this career. We will also provide educational opportunities for those interested in working with seniors. With demand at an all-time high, a career in the aging field means rewarding work helping Georgia’s seniors maintain their health and independence.
