Any home health aids on here?

I'm thinking of becoming a home health aid and was wondering if any of you ladies that might be home health aids can give me a little bit of info about this career choice. I read some things about it on the internet, but I'm wondering if this job was hard and demanding. I would love to hear all about the pros and cons of becoming a home health aid. Thanks.

  • If you have a big heart and a strong stomach it's not bad. I have friends that love it. I tried for a little while and may go back to it because it seems up my alley. But I have a hard time with other peoples body functions...if I don't it's because I really love them. Might as well give it a shot. Live and learn.

  • It doesn't pay that well for what all you are required to do. Here in Oklahoma the average is about $10 to $12 an hour. My sister is a CNA at a 5 star Nursing home and she only made $8.50.

  • Around here, it is very low pay.. Normally minimum wage - $9.00 an hour. I live in Texas.

  • Besides being a low paying job, is it a good career?
