Need for home health aide positions expected to rise 70%

April 12th, 2012 No Comments

As baby boomers age, the need for home health aides will dramatically increase in the next several years (in NJ there are two types of state-licensed aides: Certified Nurses’ Aides, CNAs, and Certified Home Health Aides, CHHAs). These aides provide invaluable NJ senior care–helping older adults remain in their home, rather than moving to an assisted living facility or nursing facility. Aides help with personal care, hygiene assistance, housekeeping, reminding people to take their medications, taking care of pets, or simply providing companionship. AARP.com lists home health aides as one of the 9 jobs expected to increase—and a great field to enter if you are ready for a second career in NJ elder care (see http://aarp.us/IEnR1w).
