Home health aides, personal and home care aides

Aides help people who are physically challenged, chronically ill or cognitively impaired. They work with older adults who need help to remain at home rather than move to assisted living or other facilities.

A personal care aide may help with daily living tasks like bathing and dressing, for example, while a home health aide may provide basic health-related services, such as checking a patient's pulse rate and temperature, or helping with simple prescribed exercises and medications.

These job categories are growing particularly fast as the U.S. population ages. Training requirements for these jobs vary from state to state.

Expected growth rate: 70 percent.
