Home Care Workers

Home care workers help elderly and disabled people with daily tasks like bathing and dressing, and perform some medical duties – and do so at a fraction of the cost of a nursing home or other long-term care facility. They also allow patients to stay in their homes and communities and maintain some of their independence.

But they are among the lowest-paid workers in the health care industry. They are compensated at much lower rates than similar aide positions.

The following data on home care workers was compiled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and a General Accounting Office review of the health care workforce.
