Home health aides work in a variety of settings. Most work in a client’s home; others work in small group homes or larger care communities.
Employment of home health aides is expected to grow by 69 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. Workforce Central Florida has listed the occupation as one of the five fastest-growing occupations in Central Florida.
The majority of employers in the healthcare industry require a background check. If the background check reveals any issues, employment may be denied. Speak with a program advisor if you have any questions.
