Benefits of being a Home Health Aide

If you would like a rewarding career in a growing industry,  then the healthcare industry is probably the right way to go for you. The healthcare industry is constantly growing and you do not have to worry about the economy slowing it down.

A fast-growing area in the medical field  is Home Health Aide. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the career home health aides opportunities will increase 49% by the year 2022. What is the cause of this you may ask? The answer is quite simple: Baby Boomers.

Baby Boomers is the generation defined as persons born Post World War II between 1946-1964. The baby boomer generation is a large group of roughly 76 million Americans. This generation is aging and relies on home health aides to assist them with preparing food, administering medication, companionship, etc.

Why aren’t these people living in senior citizen homes? Well the likelihood is that people prefer to live in their own private homes. However, if they are sick or injured they may need some kind of assistance. This is where home aides become beneficial.

People are willing to pay for them. Meaning there is a high likelihood that you will find a job. There are also policies in place that protect home health aides and make sure you are getting fair treatment.

Remember a career in this field may require you to meet certain licensing, training, and other requirements that can vary by location.

Carolyn’s Early Childhood Education Review

I graduated from Ashworth College with an Associate degree in Early Childhood Education and it has been a tremendous experience for me. I initially looked for Ashworth College online, and to be honest, my decision was made by some of the previous testimonials. Since I came to Ashworth College it has truly been an experience where I can actually go on my terms.

I am a working parent, and the cost of Ashworth College is what made it a winning choice for me. Not only did I graduate, but I enrolled in a second program. Now I am working towards my BA in Early Childhood Education, and I am very excited about the program. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quality education for the price.

I am ecstatic about it. It really shows that you can achieve your goals at Ashworth College that doesn’t set you up so you can fail. The materials were easy to understand and very thorough. I liked that you had to do homework, assignments, and reports. It was like attending any other college. The support group! I cannot stress that enough!
