There is an urgent need for this service as home health care workers are set to outpace every other occupation over the next five years. We offer a NEW option for families in need of care for their loved ones. Hiring students fills a unique gap, making home care more affordable and flexible than traditional agencies. Students benefit by gaining easy access to medical experience that fits around busy school schedules. They can achieve their goals of becoming competitive applicants for advanced degree programs and/or successfully land jobs in their desired fields.
What I'll do with $5,000
$5000 will be used to build traction to our site. We will put the money to immediate use to expand our pilot program to west Michigan colleges such as GVSU and Western. $3000 will pay student ambassadors in pre-professional majors to build awareness through social media and get students registered. To reach families, we will use $2000 to educate and provide materials to medical providers, social workers, and discharge planners - the advisors families rely on when hiring home care.
