Strout talks with Maine Monitor about elder care, nursing home staff shortages

Kelley Strout, director of the School of Nursing at the University of Maine, talked with The Maine Monitor for a story about staff shortages in nursing homes and other elderly care facilities. “You very rarely hear students say their dream career in nursing would be in a specialty such as long-term care, or caring for older adults, or working in a jail, or even working in primary care,” Strout said. The Bangor Daily News and the Wiscasset Newspaper shared the Maine Monitor story.
