Home health aide is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. The overall employment of home health aides is projected to grow 28 percent between 2006 and 2016. Home health aides provide assistance with elderly or disabled persons who need more extensive care than family or friends can provide.

Home health aides help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of health care facilities. Under the direction of nursing or medical staff, they provide health-related services, such as administering oral medications, monitor the patient’s vital signs, and help with simple prescribed exercises. Home health aide will assist patients to get in and out of bed, bathe, dress, and groom. On occasion, they may change non-sterile dressings, gives massages or provide skin care, and assist with medical equipment such as ventilators, which help patients breathe.
