home health aides

  1. Why is it so hard to find home health aides, is it poor pay, heavy workloads? My area apparently has been difficult to find home health aides to give proper care to patients at home. Is it better to work for a private customer then through an agency that may require certifications, etc.

    Yes and yes, I think.

    Also, many are dependent on public transportation so 'wiggle room' in assignments may be difficult.
