Jobs for home health care aides are currently plentiful, and continued to grow immensely by 2020. Last month 20,000 new health care jobs were gained, despite a high and steady unemployment rate. However, two important factors will determine your success. The first is working with a reputable home care agency. The second is excellent training. Some people assume being a homemaker or personal care attendant is simple, but a lot goes into performing the job well and meeting the needs of the client. The role requires independence and an ability to keep oneself accountable. Not all jobs provide medical assistance, but situations can arise that call for an ability to cope with it in a professional manner.
For this reason, a minimum of six months of experience, along with excellent references is required. An on-site interview will be required along with a completed orientation. Other certifications will need to be verified depending on the job being applied for.
Help improve the lives of our clients who seek to maintain their independence. By choosing home care they are fulfilling a preference to stay in the comfort of their own home. Some require a little assistance, which is where our caregivers come in.
