“Lately many news stories reflect job losses in health care. Is that a continuing trend or are we reorganizing our approach to quality care?” asked Dave Tomm, President of the Seasoned Workforce LLC in Rockland. “Maine has the oldest population in the United States. Do you want to die in an institution or at home? What do we have to do to make it possible? What’s happening to our economy that warrants our attention? Can seasoned people, folks 50 and older, hold the key? We do and we can make things happen.”

On Friday, Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. until noon the Seasoned Workforce, in conjunction with the Rockland Career Center and some local health care providers, will be in Rockland for a special health care seasoned worker forum. The Career Center is located in the Breakwater Marketplace at 91 Camden St., Route 1, in Rockland.

To learn more about these issues, contribute ideas, improve one’s hire potential, and even discover job opportunities, put this forum on the calendar. For more information and to reserve your spot, call 596-2600.

This event is funded in part by grant awarded under the President’s Community- Based Job Training Grants, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration, in collaboration with Maine’s Four Workforce Investment Boards. This activity is an equal opportunity employer/program – auxiliary aids & services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. There is no cost to attendees.
