Home Health Aide & Homemaker Services
Home Health Aides (HHAs) and Homemakers are health care professionals who provide care to residents at the comfort of their own homes. Their duties vary from routine housekeeping to providing personal care and activities of daily living to the individual at the comfort of his or her home. Home Health Aides also work in places other than individual private homes. They work in adult daycare centers, assisted living facilities, home care agencies, and self-employment.
The need for Home Health Aide and Homemaker services and their chances of employment cannot be exaggerated due to the increased number of elderlies, early hospital discharge, personal preferences, and hospice services in the United States.
