Home Health Care Job Description, Duties and Salary
Being a worker in a health care center is a very noble occupation. You get to help people who desperately need it; essentially, you take care of them. However, it’s really hard work, both physically and emotionally. It can be difficult to distance yourself from the patient, and their pain becomes your pain. Therefore, if you are not sure that you will be able to separate yourself from the patient, perhaps, this work will be too difficult for you.
In any case, All American Home Care is always happy to welcome people who are eager to help others! We offer a competitive salary, a friendly and Spanish-speaking team, a choice of locations, paid holidays and much more!

What Do We Want From Our Candidates?
Despite the fact that different positions require different skills, the main thing we want to see in the candidate is years of experience in this field. For a nurse, for an office manager or director, it’s all about experience and professional education.
Also, for many positions, a candidate must have the knowledge, not only of English but also Spanish, as for a large number of our clients, this is their primary language. Therefore, the employee should be able to communicate with the patient without an interpreter. Positions that have direct medical care for patients require the necessary qualification certificates.
