Many people dream of making a difference. They want to be a positive influence for their families and communities, provide for those in need, and help make someone’s day a little brighter. Some people, however, see helping others and making a living as two separate ideas–ideas that are incompatible with one another. They would be mistaken. Becoming a Home Health Aide will allow you to make a living and a difference.
A Growing Need
According to CareerCast, Home Health Care is the fastest growing industry in the United States, and it’s easy to see why. The World Bank reported in 2015 that 15.16% of the US population was 65+ years of age. That’s a staggering 48,135,000 senior citizens. The problem is starting to become apparent.
That number is only getting bigger. The United State’s second largest generation, the Baby Boomers, is quickly reaching old age. We need Home Health aides to meet the growing need.
Making a Difference
We’ve discussed in past posts that seniors prefer staying in their homes; it’s more comfortable to stay at home than to go to a nursing home. However, many seniors need care when they head home from the hospital, so they need Home Health Aides. This is where you can make a difference. When you become a certified Home Health Aide, you can meet the physical, mental, and social needs of seniors in your area–making their life better. And, the industry need for Home Health Aides is predicted to grow by 38%. Now is the time to start.
