Our Clients

One of the biggest draws of home health care is the relationships you form with your clients. So, who are they?
Often, our clients have diagnoses that require support for the rest of their lives. They are physically, medically, and financially disadvantaged and covered under Medicaid. Working at BAYADA and with these clients, you’re able to give back to those who are underprivileged. You can be that constant in someone’s life.


Enrolling in BAYADA's HHA course is a great way to get to work fast! Once certified, we'll match you with clients you'll love, find shifts that work for your schedule, and provide supplies and PPE.
