How I became a Home Health Aide
I knew I wanted a rewarding career with great pay and growth opportunities - so I decided to become a home health aide (HHA)!! Its such an amazing career.
I help people who are suffering from a disability or illness by providing care in their home. I work with a lot of elderly patients and people with chronic illnesses. I do things like oversee medication, take vital signs, and change bandaging. I also help with housekeeping, bathing, and meal prep.
Here’s how I did it:

Working for Comfortkeepers
The motivation was the clients. Every day when I went to their home they were always happy to see me and I was happy to see them. I was sometimes the only person they saw on a regular basis. The clients had wonderful stories to tell about themselves and many times I heard the same stories over and over. I would listen to their stories and pretend I had never heard them before.
