Direct-care staff stability in a national sample of small group homes.
In this national study of direct-care staff members working in 101 small (6 or fewer residents) community homes, we examined staff stability in terms of turnover, staff members' perceptions of turnover problems, and their intentions to remain a careprovider.
The annual turnover rate for the facilities sampled was 57%. Staff members indicated that they planned to remain a care provider for an average of 5.4 years (SD=5.9).
The findings confirm the importance of individual staff member characteristics to staff members' stability.
