Why Home Health
Home health care is all about making the services fit the person, with care provided in the place they call home – allowing nurses, therapists, and other clinicians to provide care and guidance using the person’s actual surroundings and resources. Come work for an organization that puts the patient and family at the center of all we do.
By focusing on preventing hospital stays, quality of life, and education, home health care is at the forefront of the health care revolution and plays a vital role in the future of our health care system. As hospitals discharge patients earlier and earlier, the need for quality, skilled care in the home is rapidly increasing.
Five Reasons Why Caregivers Choose to Work in Home Health
- The ability to make a difference in people’s lives. Home health nurses, therapists and other caregivers form deep relationships with their clients. Home health care enhances clients’ quality of life and can help them avoid going to hospitals or nursing homes.
- Flexibility and autonomy. Home health caregivers can often choose their own hours, making it easier to juggle other commitments like family or education.
- Professional growth and development. Home care workers often offer complex care for patients at home. In many jobs, workers can gain specialized skills.
- Job security. According to the U.S. Administration on Aging, by 2030, 28 percent of all Vermonters will be 65 years of age or older. As the population ages, the need for qualified home health care professionals will continue to grow.
- A rewarding profession. There’s no wonder most home health professionals report satisfaction with their jobs. They know that every day, they provide people with comfort, companionship and quality care at home, where they most want to receive it.
