    Home health care is the trend nowadays. It is not only for recovering patients, but also for elderly people who don’t want to go to hospitals and whose conditions do not require emergency or 24-hour intensive monitoring. Studies have shown that patients recover quickly when surrounded by familiar things or in an environment they recognize.

    This is great news! Is this like working with flexible hours? Because I have nurse friends who are tired of working long shifts (night shifts!) in hospitals. I thought if they’ll be visiting homes, they won’t be working for 8 hours, am I right?

  3. Jinel Cooper says:

    You mention the bonus of the strong relationship bonds that are sometimes acquired when taking care of an elderly or sick person for a long time. It’s true. There are a lot of people, especially the elderly, who have no family or friends to rely on or if they do, they are no longer close to them or they live too far away. For these people, a home health care aide becomes like a family member and often they become even closer to them, and more grateful to them, than they have any member of their natal family. It is not unheard of for these people to even remember a trusted and well liked health care aide in their will. So there really are a lot of bonuses that can come out of the job if you have the right kind of compassion and sincere desire to help others. Its a vital role that you play in the lives of people who are scared and vulnerable and not a position to be entered lightly. I agree with the advice to do your homework before deciding to pursue training in this field, in order to assure that you are psychologically prepared for all it entails, as well as to find the right program for the type of health care job you want to be in.

    This is certainly a lucrative career. It requires patience though

  5. Miaka Yuuki says:

    How is this different from a nursing home? from a care giver? Anyway, it is a well paying career particularly if the clint is not a pain in the ass.

    “And when those patients work with committed home health care workers, the outcome is usually far more favorable. ” What I think that, not only for the patients feel comfortable when they stay home, but also the home health care workers might feel happy and good emotion.

  7. Maury Cheskes says:

    I have never seen people more committed than the staff and helpers at nursing homes. My grandmother stayed at Pine Villa for the last remaining years of her life and her caregiver stayed in her room daily walking her to meals and helping her keep an uplifting spirit. She spent more time in that nursing home than she did at home which shows real care and consideration.

  8. Mau says:

    I could just imagine how rewarding working on the health care field is. Not only will you be helping people but I’m sure there are lots to learn; not just the technical aspects of health care but also learning how to be patient, dealing with emotions, etc.

    My daughter is going to start working in the homes of the elderly. She is still a student doing her MA on Health Studies. Her job entails helping old people do a bit of housework and shopping. She is also expected to act as a companion to them when they need someone to go with them on walks or simply listen to their stories. I am so proud of her for specifically looking for this type of job!

  11. Safwan Awang says:

    Home health care job is a good job, not only convenient for elders that stay at home and do not have people to care for them. Interesting job though, I believe this job is needed in this day. People mostly unable to take care of themselves, so how they can care for their elders. Having people work on this job really do help in many ways.

  12. Sam says:

    It’s very rewarding if you get to work in Home Health Care. Not only you get to earn but you get to help elders as well.

  13. Buddy says:

    Britney is right if you don’t have emergencies you should be on Home Health Care. Hospitals are for people that have emergencies and need 24 hours attention.

  14. Chris Lee says:

    This arrangement works out well for both the care worker and the patient who needs care but doesn’t warrant hospitalisation. It is a win-win situation for the patient and the worker. As many have commented patients always do better in the home environment.
