Interim HealthCare: Caregiver, CNA, & Home Health Aide Jobs
Posted: 11/8/2021 8:00 AM by
Wanted: People who:
Are interested in a career, not a job.
Want to enjoy personally rewarding work in a booming, recession-proof industry.
Are looking for an opportunity offering a flexible schedule, steady hours, training and growth, and competitive pay.
Want to make a difference in people’s lives every day.
How about that for a description of the perfect career opportunity? Outside of having travel to exotic locations, it’s got just about everything you’d want.
How many careers allow you to work as much as you want, when you want? How many let you decide if you want part-time or full-time hours, instead of dictating your hours to you? How many offer initial and ongoing training to help you grow in your career? How many offer you a family culture where people want to help you succeed?
A Growing Career Field
According to estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are estimated to be almost 600,000 openings available every year for home health and personal care aides, with a substantial increase of 33% predicted between 2020 and 2030.
The aging baby boomer population and expanded Medicaid coverage are significant reasons for the surge in the need for personal care and home health aides. As a result, more caregivers than ever are now needed to care for the sick and elderly in their own homes.
Ask any aging American, and one of their biggest concerns in life is being able to age at home. Sometimes family caregiving isn’t an option, but it becomes evident that someone is needed to help with the personal care of a family member. Unfortunately, it’s during these times that seniors face the possibility of being institutionalized to receive the care they need.
As a professional caregiver, you can make a difference and help an aging adult remain at home. The satisfaction you receive from helping someone stay in their favorite place is equal to the patient's and their family's appreciation that you’re there to make a difference.
You can also specialize in areas you have a heart for, like helping seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Because of the growing needs and opportunities, focusing on treating one particular type of patient can be something you grow into as you gain experience.
As demand for home health care continues to skyrocket, established home care agencies offer very competitive pay to caregivers. Of course, this will vary from agency to agency.
We’ve painted a pretty picture of the caregiving career, but it has its days like any career. There will be days that you’ll have exerted a considerable amount of mental and physical energy, and you’ll go home “dog tired.” The difference is that being tired from a job isn’t the same as being tired from a career. But you’ll end up agreeing with so many caregivers that the difference they’re making in people’s lives makes up for the occasional tough day.
