How To Become A Home Health Aide
Home health aides are direct care workers that typically work with patients who require long-term care that is more extensive than friends and family members can give. Medical personnel such as experienced aides, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses typically train home health aides on the job. Some employers provide new home health aides with classroom instruction. Many aides also attend in-service training, workshops, and lectures. Employment of home health aides is expected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 28% from 2006 to 2016. The aging population and growing demand for home services will drive job growth.
