Michael, a Home Attendant for a disabled person, shares what he likes most about his job, its challenges, his key decision, how hard it is to find work in his field and his work-life balance. Being reliable and dependable is important in this line of work along with finding a balance between the personal relationship and the working relationship between you and the person who has hired you.
Home health and personal care aides help people who are disabled, chronically ill, or cognitively impaired. They also help older adults who may need assistance. They help with activities such as bathing and dressing, and they provide services such as light housekeeping. In some states, home health aides may be able to give a client medication or check the client's vital signs under the direction of a nurse or other healthcare practitioner.
