Home Care Dominates the Best Jobs without a College Degree

Posted on Monday, January 20, 2020 2:45 PM

In the United States, more people than ever are pursuing a college degree, but college is not for everyone.  According to a new study from U.S. News & World Report, home health aide is the job for those who do wish to pursue a college degree.

According to US News, the median salary for a home health aide in 2018 was $24,200.  Nevada, California, North Dakota, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts are the highest paying states for home health aides. 

“Many of our patients will think of their [home care aide] as the nurse that really cured them because he or she helped them do the things they needed to do to get well,” said NAHC Executive Vice President Andrea Devoti, who spoke to US News for the survey.

“Home care is typically less expensive than a nursing home or hospital care,” notes US News, “and many senior citizens prefer to remain in their home for as long as possible. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 36.6 percent employment growth for home health aides between 2018 and 2028. In that period, an estimated 304,800 jobs should open up.”
