Home health aide is among the fastest growing jobs since the economy has recovered from the Great Recession.
From 2007 to 2017, 296,952 home health aide jobs were added—a 46% increase, according to recently released data from CareerBuilder.
The pattern of growth has been well documented over the years, driven in large part by the aging population. In-home care providers continue to name recruiting aides as a top industry challenge. At the same time, home health care providers are facing high turnover rates.
Registered nurses overall had major growth since the recession as well, rising 16% from 2007 to 2017 with 397,315 more jobs.
