CADER is dedicated to strengthening the workforce that provides health and long-term supports and services to older adults and people with disabilities.

This includes understanding the aging network landscape by identifying key customers and national trends in aging and working with potential clients to determine how to build competencies in the aging workforce. Knowledge of aging and disability practice and best practices in training are key skills for this position in the design of the curriculum, grant writing, and program development and management.
