Home Health Aides

What does a home health aide do?

If you have a loved one nearing retirement age, chances are good that at some point you’ll be in the market for home health care. People turning 65 today have an almost 70 percent chance of needing some type of elder care services or support in their remaining years, according to the federal Department of Health and Human Services.

At A Caring Hand Services, our home health aides receive formal training in basic patient care skills and home management. HHAs are highly qualified to perform various services for the patient necessary to maintain his or her personal comfort along with a clean, safe environment. The care and skills performed are provided under the supervision of an RN Nursing Supervisor.
