Being the first booming area in Healthcare Sector, Home Healthcare is projected to grow over 50% by the end of this year. This is possible due to increasing numbers in elderly population that strictly demand private medical attention that need to be done in the comforts of their own home. It is also evident that not only the elderly who needed healthcare are increasing in numbers but also the number of those who suffer various illnesses.
As of now, these are the in-demand jobs in Home Healthcare Sector:
- Doctors and Nurses usually provide healthcare not only in various hospitals and clinics but also in homes of their old or sick patients. Since some patients doesn’t want to stay in hospitals or go to clinics maybe due to personal reasons or illnesses that somehow limit their mobility, physicians and nurses also offer home healthcare services as a part-time job. On the other hand, some doctors and nurses prefer giving home healthcare jobs at a full-time basis, though very rare.
- Home Healthcare Aides are also in-demand due to their various personal tasks such as preparing meals and baths for the sick or elderly, giving medicines to patients at the right time and other activities that the concerned patient needs assistance such as taking a stroll in the park, going to clinics or hospitals for important check-ups, etc.
Home Healthcare Aides mostly enjoy working as an employee of the patient’s family because it allows more freedom, especially when it comes to sharing meals with their patients or helping them out with various medications.
