The Boston Sunday Globe ran three articles in the Money & Careers section and each one had mentioned home health as a bright spot in terms of job growth in the current economy and moving forward over the next decade.
One article broke down the top occupations in terms growth and quoted the Alliance’s Tim Burgers regarding home health aides and nurses:
An aging population is hoping to live independently. That means health care at home and in the community will be a source of jobs. For both nurses and home health aides, “there’s more demand than supply,’’ said Tim Burgers, associate director of the nonprofit Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.
Another article in that section titled “Health Care Help Always Needed” mentioned that home health is the nation’s fastest growing health care occupation, as it is projected to have a 50 percent growth from 2008-1028.
