Home Health Care Aides


Earnings for home health care aides are comparable to the salaries of nursing and psychiatric aides and nurse assistants. Depending on the agency, considerable flexibility exists in working hours and patient load. For many aides who begin as part-time employees, the starting salary is usually the minimum hourly wage. For full-time aides with significant training or experience, earnings may be around $10 to $15 per hour. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, median hourly earnings of home health aides were $11.63 (or $24,200 annually) in May 2018. Wages ranged from $9.16 to more than $15.47 an hour (or $19,060 to $32,180 annually).
