This study examined long-term care workers’ contemplation to leave their current employment situation. Direct care workers from three Canadian provinces were surveyed. Intention to leave was measured with a survey question asking participants whether they had seriously considered quitting their job recently. The results of the binary logistic regression indicated that both immediate supervisor support and social care tasks performed were statistically significant predictors of intention to leave. Higher levels of supervisor support and more social care tasks performed regularly were associated with lower intention to quit among direct care workers.
