Hospice Home Health Aides
Preparing for End-of-Life Care
A serious illness can be overwhelming for a family; often the right caregiver can alleviate some of the stress a family is feeling when they are caring for a terminally ill person.
Our hospice home health aides are specially trained on how to care both physically and emotionally for a client who has a terminal illness.
The caregiver provide assistance with the activities of daily living and personal care. This includes:
Transfers: getting in and out of bed or in and out of a wheelchair can be challenging. Our caregivers have the training to safely assist our clients.
Assistance with bathing and toileting. Maintaining personal hygiene while still maintaining a clients dignity and respecting his or her privacy, is an essential service we provide.
Meal preparation and encouraging the client to eat – assisting as needed.
Light housekeeping, medication reminders, running errands, and going to social events or doctors appointments.
All of our home health aides and personal care aides are supervised by a Registered Nurse (RN) to ensure the highest and most effective quality of care.
