Updated: Feb 7

How to hire a certified home health aide or caregiver

There is a misconception that Certified Home Health Aides and Caregivers are reserved for older adults or elderly clients that can do little for themselves in their homes. But the reality is that Certified Home Health Aides are trained to assist anyone in need of care and assistance. Home Care Agencies hire and train HHA's to assist clients of all ages, including pediatrics and young adults that suffer with a range of disabilities, whether it be short term or long term disabilities. Most clients in need of home care services must have Medicaid or private insurance to receive services from a home care agency. There is also the option to pay out of pocket for care, but that can be very expensive for most people as you are often required to pay premium rates for agencies to manage the care, schedules and payroll, and often require a minimum amount of hours per day / week to qualify.

Individuals that recently suffered an injury and required surgery benefit greatly from caregiving support provided by Certified Home Health Aides. But what happens if the individual does not have Medicaid or is unable to afford the hefty fees associated with Private Pay Home Care Agencies? How do you hire a caregiver?

It used to be that when you needed assistance in your home with caregiving, one would simply ask friends and family for support, but asking a friend or family member to assist with caregiving was very difficult to accomplish simply because people in general are often too busy with their own lives. Some people have tried posting a caregiving request on Craigslist, a job board commonly used for domestic gigs, but posting a request for caregiving assistance on Craigslist often meant receiving many responses from individuals that are either inexperienced, lacking the skills and experience needed by the client, or unreliable individuals that never show up for an assignment. Unfortunately, Craigslist has also been plagued for many years by scam artists and posts from individuals soliciting inappropriate services.
