The ageing population was hastily increasing as social services were jammed with numerous requests to provide care (Gavrilov &amp. Heuveline, 2003).

Their departure from health institution created a shortage. As the increase of the older population social services were in need of caregivers to cater for the rising number. Reid (2009) points out that the situation is forecasted to become worse as the number of number of health workers shortages is on the increase while the ageing population becomes greater.
What mechanisms can be developed to curb this trend? Considering the significant growth of the older population, what measures is the National Bureau of Workforce Analysis putting in place to safeguard the efficiency and quality of the health care system?

Reid (2009) points out that if adult practitioners become of age, a practice is forced to look
