First, care workers at home care service centers were found to have lower education levels, lower income levels and more frequent temporary job positions, and were more aged than care workers at long term service centers. And they showed lower level of work load. Second, job satisfaction was higher among care workers at home care service centers than among those at long-term service centers.
