As a clinician there are so many settings for employment, so you may be asking yourself...why home health?
Home Health agencies treat patients who are too sick to leave the home for medical care. Usually consisting of elderly people who have recently undergone a spell of illness or exacerbation of condition, it's a very rewarding field. There's nothing like helping someone walk again after a fall, regain speaking ability after a stroke or independently care for themselves.
Your patients are focused in a small area of your choosing. You schedule visits with patients at days and times that are convenient for you. You decide how many visits you want to do in a day, week or month. You're the boss!
With Home Health, you're not limited by working hours, or working days. Even if comparing hour for hour, the Home Health industry pays more than any other healthcare setting. An average full time therapist, nurse, social worker or home health aide in home health can easily make from 10% more annually.
