Much to the surprise of many people, many home health care workers are not licensed. Many of these people are individuals who have worked at a variety of different jobs and then in order to help ends meet in a difficult economy have taken on the job of being home health care aides. They are not trained as health care workers and have no licensure.

Home health care in Michigan is a totally unregulated industry like assisted living.

Many home health care workers are well trained and outstanding at what they do. Many are not.

Never hesitate to ask any home health care worker about their qualifications, background and experience. Asking that question could save your life.
