5 Reasons to Pursue a Career in Home Health Care

Home Health Agencies Need Kind and Enthusiastic People to Care for Patients

Consider these five reasons to transition your career toward home health care services, where nurses and other care providers can help patients recover from surgery, illnesses, or injury, and adapt to living with their diagnoses. Patients rely on you to help them stay healthy where they live – a rewarding career path for a compassionate, dedicated person like you.

  1. Flexible Schedules as a Home Health Care Nurse Case Manager, Physical Therapist, or Occupational Therapist

    When you provide patient care as a home health nurse or hold a role like physical or occupational therapist, you get the benefit of choosing your own working hours.

    In your role, you’ll receive your patient assignments and provide the utmost level of care at the patient’s home or facility – wherever they live. You’ll have plenty of time in your schedule for meal breaks and to handle school pick-ups or drop-offs, or other quick errands. This is because you can create your own schedule based on patient availability and your preferences.

    Home health care team members can work either full-time or part-time hours, and in some instances can be hired for on-call or weekend-only roles. This helps you maintain a comfortable work-life balance and a schedule that fits your lifestyle, including determining when your work day starts and stops.

  2. Enjoy a Comprehensive Benefits Package

    When you work for a home health care service that offers a full continuum of patient care, that mission of care continues to employees. Valued employees like you deserve a comprehensive benefits package – even if you only work part-time.

    Depending on your role, your benefits package can include:

    • Medical insurance with spousal coverage
    • Vision and dental insurance
    • Paid time off

    This, coupled with competitive pay, makes working for Phoenix a smart choice for many people seeking full-time or part-time positions

  3. Receive Ongoing Training In Your Area of Home Health Care

    Learning and growing in your profession is a tried-and-true way of progressing and building skills. As a home health care LPN, RN home health case manager, or physical or occupational therapist, you will receive paid orientation and ongoing training to ensure you’re providing the best possible patient care and support as possible.

    Not only can these training sessions help you understand the latest best practices, but they also can help you grow in your career.

  4. Every Day Is Different

    If you’re not a fan of routine and are looking for some excitement and variation during the workweek, providing care as a nurse, aide, therapist, or other health-related role can help you stay engaged with your career.

    Wake up to each new day, where you’ll have the privilege of visiting and caring for patients throughout our service areas. You’ll travel to interesting neighborhoods and manage your own time. Break away from the monotony of your current role and embrace a career in home health care.

  5. You’ll Be a Part of a Mission-Driven Organization

    Becoming a part of an organization that makes a major difference in patients’ lives is rewarding. It’s even more rewarding when you’re part of an organization that values and focuses on its mission every moment of the day.

    A mission-driven home health care provider is committed to improving the quality of life of the patients they serve. The inside – the culture – is what sets apart these mission-driven organizations from others that look like them from the outside.

    In your role, you’ll exemplify why Phoenix Home Care & Hospice is different from the rest. You’ll also uphold our organization’s values as you serve patients and support clinicians in your community. For our part, we’ll celebrate your contributions to our team – because you deserve it.
