Home Health Aides (HHA's)
Home Health Aides (HHA's) assist your loved one with "Activities of Daily Living" (ADLs), but have additional training for clients requiring a higher level of care. These aides undergo additional hours of in-service training throughout the year and are regularly tested on their specialty care training.
Typical Home Health Aide Tasks Include:
- Meal preparation for special or complex diets (low sodium, low fat, etc.)
- Assisting with Range of Motion exercises
- Simple dressing changes
- Knowledge and training on the use of assistive devices, such as a Hoyer Lift
- Assisting with personal hygiene, such as toileting, bathing, dressing, and feeding
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation
- Housekeeping and laundry services
- Assistance with walking, standing, sitting
As with all of our aides, HHAs are state licensed/certified, bonded, insured, and pass regular in-service exams. All staff undergo rigorous criminal background checks, as well as drug screenings prior to be placed within a client's home. All services and care plans are monitored routinely by our dedicated staff of RN Supervisors to ensure client safety and well-being.
