The demand for skilled home health aides in New York is at an all-time high. This fact won’t change anytime soon, and as the aging population grows, so will that need. Despite this, many health care agencies fail to value their employees and treat them with the respect they deserve. Although there are many home health aide agencies out there, not all of them can offer a work environment you’ll love.
At the David York Home Healthcare Agency, we understand that skilled health aides are indispensable for providing quality care, so we do everything we can to make our employees happy. If you’re looking for a job in the home health care field, we invite you to consider joining our team. Here are four reasons why.
4 Reasons a Home Health Aide Should Consider a Job at David York Home Healthcare Agency
As you consider jobs in home health care, you’ll see that each listing offers different pros and cons for you to weigh as a potential employee. Sorting through all the options can get overwhelming, so we’d like to make it easier for you to choose.
At David York, we strive to make our employees feel valued and to give them the support and training they need. Our work environment is positive, and we do what we can to meet your needs. Here are just some of the reasons you should apply to work for us today.
1. High Standards
Our goal is always to provide the highest quality care for our elderly patients. In our experience, caregivers want to support their patients with compassion and attention, but not all employers allow them the time to do so. In fact, many home health aides say that being pressured to cut corners is a big reason they feel burned out and overwhelmed.
We do everything we can to support our patients’ wellness, not just take care of their problems. Our mission is to help them to have a higher level of independence and to live happier, healthier lives. The kind of caregiver who enjoys being a part of a team that’s truly committed to improving elderly people’s quality of life will love being a part of the David York Agency.
We don’t just allow our employees the space to connect with patients and families–we encourage it. People go into the caregiving profession because they want to help; we give them the freedom to do that.
2. Convenient Training Opportunities
Home health care aides should be respected as professionals. One of the ways we do that is by providing the training they need to keep their Home Health Aide Certificate up to date. We offer orientation and in-service training opportunities to help you meet the requirements needed to maintain your professional credentials.
If your Home Health Aide Certificate expires, it takes much more time and expense to get certified again. We are here to help you prevent that from happening, so you can stay with the job you love and avoid the stress of recertifying. As an employer, we want to work with you so you have what you need.
3. Work Positions That Fit Your Life
It can be difficult to find a work schedule that can fit the demands of your life. Some people want to work a full 40-hour work week, while others are limited by other obligations. We understand that people’s needs differ, and we strive to accommodate those needs.
We offer a wide range of flexible hours, so you can fit your work into your life. Our employees can work part-time or full-time, depending on what they require. We also have live-in positions or traditional jobs where you only spend work hours in the patient’s home.
No matter what your needs are when it comes to a work schedule, we can find a position that matches you.
4. Competitive Wages
One of the ways we demonstrate how much we value our employees is by paying them competitive wages. You simply can’t build a top-notch team if you don’t pay them what they’re worth. At the David York Agency, our goal is always to provide the highest quality care, so we understand how vital it is to pay our employees well.
