Job Description:
Looking for Home Health Aides in the Venice/North Port Area

THIS POSITION IS AVAILABLE WITH APPROVED HOME HEALTH. Approved Home Health became part of the Tidewell Hospice, Inc. family when it was purchased by the well-respected, not-for-profit hospice and palliative care provider. Approved Home Health’s alignment with Tidewell was a natural fit, since both agencies have always been passionate about helping people remain independent and stay in their homes, if that is their preference. Approved Home Health also supports people who have moved into a nursing home or assisted living facility by providing a level of one-on-one care that goes beyond what’s available at those facilities.
