As the baby boomer generation ages, the need for skilled home health/personal care assistance will increase. This presents an opportunity for individuals wanting to enter the healthcare field but also enjoy a less stressful environment, better client outcomes and a flexible schedule.

If you or someone you know enjoy caring for people of all ages in a home setting, then consider joining us for a free information on March 7 at 10am or 5pm at our new Easton campus to learn more about our  home health aide training program.
