Call for Participants in Research Study on the Well-Being and Experience of Home Care Aides
Monday, June 8, 2020
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is seeking participants for a study to explore and document the experience home care aides have working in their roles, the factors which foster or inhibit their sense of social belonging, well-being, and personal motivation to continue to work in the field. The study aims to give fresh perspective to this critical role in home-based care and service delivery directly through the eyes of the employee themselves.
NAHC is seeking participants who meet the criteria listed below.
- You are currently employed as a home care aide working in the United States.
- You are not self-employed.
- You work for one or more employers as a home care aide.
- You are employed either full (40+ hours/week) or part time (less than 40 hours/week but more than 20).
- You have been employed as a home care aide for five years or more
- You do not hold any professional license as a caregiver or other credential (i.e., Certified Nursing Assistant, etc.).
- You have no prior personal or professional working relationship with the primary researcher, Emilie Bartolucci, Executive Director of the Private Duty Home Care Association (PDHCA).
If you do not meet all requirements above, you are not able to participate in this study.
Your story and your experience as a home care aide matter. By sharing your personal experience, you can help to increase awareness of your role in the delivery of home-based care and services within the larger health care industry.
If you are interested in learning more, or potentially participating in this study, please contact the Emilie Bartolucci at firstname.lastname@example.org. The response period will be open from June 1 to June 30, 2020.
Participants who qualify and are selected to participate and who successfully complete the interviews will be offered a $25 gift card as compensation for their time and participation.
