Living Well was on WCCO!

Did you see it? Living Well was IN THE NEWS!! Big thanks to John Lauritsen from WCCO for coming out yesterday and doing a piece on the staffing issues hitting our industry especially hard. He did a segment a few weeks ago about group homes having to close and came out to showcase what we have been doing to keep afloat throughout this unprecedented employee shortage. Please watch, and then tell your friends looking for meaningful work that we are hiring, and have a huge need for more Direct Support Professionals and CNAs. Employees get referral incentives, so if you already work for Living Well, remember to tell your friends to apply!
