Home Health Aide Handbook
Projections for the health care industry predict that the need for home health aides will increase by fifty percent, particularly in Florida, where a large portion of the population is elderly and requires additional care.
In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts an astonishing 40% growth rate in home health and personal care aide roles by 2026*. That's more than four times the average growth rate for all occupations.
