Rehabilitation aides assist medical professionals in providing therapy to patients. Rehabilitation aides may work in a physical, occupational, or recreational therapy capacity. Their responsibilities are non-clinical and typically involve clerical work. Rehabilitation aides also prepare treatment areas and clean appliances. Occasionally, they perform routine patient care, such as heat pack application or helping the patient from the waiting room to the treatment area.
Although the Bureau of Labor and Statistics predicts rapid growth for rehab aide positions between now and 2020 (44% for physical therapist aides and 33% for occupational therapist aides), the job market is tough due to intense competition. Becoming a rehabilitation aide does not require postsecondary education, so there are many qualified candidates for rehabilitation aide jobs.
Most training for rehabilitation aide jobs is done on the job, however, clerical and clinical experiences are valuable assets for potential candidates. Job settings are typically in hospitals, nursing homes, or private facilities. Successful rehabilitation aides are organized and strong communicators who are comfortable doing both behind-the-scenes work and interacting with patients.
