Home Health / Hospice Jobs
Lifestyles have changed and lifespans have lengthened. As a result, there are many opportunities for home health / hospice nursing and executive jobs that did not exist two or three decades ago. Many older people are quite independent but need some help immediately after surgical discharge or with some routine medical tasks. In other cases, terminally ill individuals need a different kind of care and a different kind of caregiver.
At Management Resource Solutions, Inc. (MRSI), we are committed to all our partners. That means both employers and employees. Over the years, we have placed thousands of qualified people in challenging positions and given them the chance to succeed. As a result, good things have happened to employers, employees, and patients.
Some Home Health Nurse Basics
These highly sought-after individuals fill several important niches. Older people often live alone and/or have longer post-surgical recovery times. So, they need short-term help with many everyday tasks. Other individuals have chronic health conditions, like congestive heart failure. Their health is serious enough to require constant care, but not serious enough to warrant hospitalization.
Home health hospice nursing and executive jobs are available in both these areas. At MRSI, many of our successful home health candidates have the same attributes:
- Excellent communication skills and “bedside manner,”
- Able to work independently, and
- Above-average time management skills.
In addition to care positions, many supervisory positions are available in the home health area. Some nurse managers go from home to home, while others serve in the facility itself.
