If a patient develops physical or emotional symptoms that aren’t easily managed with routine care, continuous care may be an option. Continuous care provides more intense care in the patient’s home environment. A nurse and/or a continuous care home health aide will remain in the patient’s home environment for a minimum of 8 up to 24 hours per day to administer medications, treatments, and support until the symptoms are under control. Some examples of symptoms requiring continuous care would be unrelieved pain, severe nausea and vomiting, severe shortness of breath, anxiety or panic attacks, or a breakdown in the primary caregiver support system. Continuous care is considered a short term level of care and is reevaluated every 24 hours.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the median annual wage of HHA continuous care jobs was $20,560 in May 2010. The median annual wage of personal care aides was $19,640 in May 2010. Home health aide continuous care jobs are expected to grow by 69 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
