Home care is considered an essential pillar of the health care systems in many industrialized countries. With an increased demand for home health workers, there has been growing interest in examining recruitment and retention of these workers. With a focus on recruitment of home support workers, in this study we draw on data from interviews with 57 home support workers in three Canadian provinces, to examine the factors that attract individuals to employment in this sector. These factors include: previous experience, financial considerations, and enjoying working with people. Understanding these overlapping factors can aide in the recruitment of future workers.
