Work may be tough at first, but rewarding for sure
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2012 -- Home health care in California is a rising trend that aims to make a real difference in lives. This popular business doesn’t have any college requirements and has now become one of the fastest rising occupations in California. With a negligible salary, not everyone is willing to invest a lot of time, but the reward of helping those who cannot help themselves is priceless.
The job description consists of tasks like visiting old and sick people to provide them with medication and also helping them complete their daily routine.
The State Employment Department has recently observed the figures related to the number of workers available for providing Home Health Care. It has been revealed that by 2020, California will boast an increase of 52% in the number of Home Health Care workers. This job has currently around 10,000 people employed and has the most steadily growing rate of participants over recent years, mainly due to the increase in population.
Statistics of Personal Health Care were also observed and were nowhere close to what has been mentioned above. It is said that the number of workers in this job will increase by 43% by the year 2020.
Ken Erman who is the CEO of Home Care and Rx Staffing, according to sacebee.com, stated,
“The need for health care workers is excessive. Elderly people need someone to take care of them. There is however, no need for them being sent to nursing homes.”
The increase in the need for Home Health workers is also due to the rise in the number of aging people.
Keesha Williams works for a Sacramento Agency, and she noticed that there are several different needs of senior citizens that must be addressed. These include helping them use the bathroom, changing their clothes, giving them their medication and easing them into their beds and wheel chairs. For this reason, it is essential to keep close watch on them and be highly active and even energetic.
Ideally, when an agency is hiring a Health Worker these aspects are to be kept in mind, other than the fact compassion and working for humanity must also be present.
