The nation is seeing a surge in demand for home health-care workers, a trend that is playing out in North Dakota.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Grand Forks-based Altru Health System is seeing an increase in demand for home-health aides in North Dakota.

For Altru, the demand is growing the most in rural areas, perhaps because of more awareness of those services, according to Kari Jensen, Altru’s home-health and hospice manager, the paper reports.

In addition to Grand Forks, Altu's home health program has branches in the northeast North Dakota towns of Cavalier, Devils Lake, Grafton, McVille and Park River, and also in Warren, Minn., according to the Associated Press.

The majority of patients receiving home-health services from Altru are recovering from acute-care hospitalization or other changes in health status that warrants a nurse or therapist, the Herald says.
