Home Health Aide Part II


Home Health Aide Part II

Earlier this week we looked at what a home health aide is and the necessary skills that the

position requires. Now we are going to take a look at some reasons to become a home health

aide and the prerequisites.

The home health aide position, according to the Department of

Labor, is expected to grow faster than the average job. By the year 2022, the employment rate

is expected to have increased by 48 percent. Positions in this field of work are increasing

largely due to the need for additional patient care as a cause of injury, illness and old age also

increase. Nationwide, the average hourly wage is $11.46. Becoming a home health aide is a

rewarding position because it is often one on one patient interaction. Working one on one can

be an opportunity to provide comfort and possibly make a difference in a patient’s care and life.

The prerequisites of a home health aide include having a certified nurse’s aide certificate and

completing a reading test. The next step is to complete the home health aide coursework. The

home health aide course is offere homehealthcare-iMgbkL.jpg d through We Care Online and consists of a twenty-hour course. The goal of completing the course is to have gained training and knowledge that would

allow you to provide safe and exceptional in-home personal care assistance. If you are

interested in helping make a difference in the life of a patient and enjoy working one on one,

this may be a career choice for you.
