We understand that certain restrictions that life throws our way like, aging, having a disability or chronic illness can make it very difficult for someone to be able to fully care for themselves. This is where a home health aide can help assist with daily tasks to improve their quality of life both physically and mentally. Our home healthcare aides are hands-on, show compassion and kindness with many times them becoming the trusted friend of the client.
Our trained home health aides have specialized training, which allows them to change any bandages or dressing and help with the medical equipment. Under the guidance of one of our registered nurses, the home healthcare aide can administer medication or check the vital signs of the client. Our home healthcare aides are trained as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) or as a patient care assistant (PCA).
