Learn More About Working in Home Healthcare

home health nurse taking care of a patient

Baby boomers are aging. Most people prefer to live at home for as long as possible, which is creating the growing demand for registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) who work in the home health nursing specialty.

In order to help limit healthcare spending by reducing the length of hospital stays, more people are choosing to receive healthcare services from the comfort and privacy of home. Therefore, home health continues to grow as do the opportunities for jobs in this field.

What is Home Health?

Home health is a type of healthcare delivery model that entails a nurse or nursing assistant who travels to the home of the patient and renders services at the residence.

The work of a home health nurse is extremely important. Because the work focuses on the patient, in their own home, home health nurses can build a rapport with their patients and develop a positive working relationship with them.

What Do Home Health Nurses and CNAs Do?

Patients who receive home healthcare may require varying levels and types of services, including:

  • Assistance with the medication regimen
  • Assistance with bathing
  • Assistance with grooming
  • Assistance with mobility
  • Assistance with other daily tasks
  • Meticulous documentation of vital signs, bladder, and bowel functions
  • Meticulous documentation of rehabilitation progress
  • Providing wound care
  • Providing massages
  • Assisting/providing maintenance of a prosthetic limb

Nurses who work in the home health specialty often find themselves building relationships with not just the patients but the family members and neighbors, as well. Empathetic nurses take deep satisfaction in building these bonds with the people they care for.

What are the Characteristics of a Good Home Health Aide or Nurse?

Nurses and CNAs who work in home health must be self-motivators who work well independently. When you pick up a job in home health, part of the work process involves your transit to the patient’s home. There is diligence involved in recording the number of miles you travel in certain cases for reimbursement and keeping track of your hours worked, etc. A good home health nurse or CNA excels with time management, communication, and organization.
