How Is Recruiting for Home Healthcare Different?

Trust, reliability, and a flexible personality. These traits are essential to the success of a Home Healthcare business.

Providing home healthcare poses a unique challenge to both the healthcare industry and the recruitment and placement process. Direct supervision disappears when an employee goes inside someone’s home.  A patient and their family must believe that the home healthcare company would only provide the most trustworthy and competent care giver into their safe environment. A candidate for a leadership role within this specialty niche must possess the necessary qualifications and certifications, and also have the personality traits for effective leadership.

These are some of the recent long-term positions MedBest has filled in the Home Healthcare industry.

  • Home Health Administrator
  • Director of Nursing
  • Branch Manager

Medical home health agencies administer licensed nursing and rehab care under strict guidelines from a physician in the patient’s own home. In these situations, caregivers are out of their own work environments and in a foreign household, where they must use their training, skill and adaptive personality to provide the correct care for each individual patient. Management must have the ability to choose trustworthy care givers that operate with limited oversight.

With the Baby Boomer generation entering retirement age, alternatives to senior care facilities are skyrocketing. Home healthcare has become a popular option with many demanding requirements.
