A home health aide is someone that can assist with daily living activities such as meal prepping, bathing, grooming, dressing, light housekeeping, transport to doctor appointments, pick up prescriptions, go grocery shopping, and more. They follow a care plan created by the clients’ team of nurses and doctors and try to make their life more comfortable, and manageable. Home health aides are responsible for reporting any changes they see in the clients’ health or behavior, and of any incidents that occur while they are on the clock in order to protect themselves and the client.
Why Hire A Home Health Aide?
It is very beneficial for a person to hire a home health aide for both temporary or permanent situations. For temporary cases, the client may be going through physical therapy, or had major surgery, requiring them to need temporary assistance for day-to-day activities. For permanent cases, this resource is great for the client and their family. The client does not have to worry about being a burden on their loved ones, and can accept the help of a home health aide so that the client does not try to do daily activities on their own and potentially hurt himself. It is also great for the family because they can get a break from the daily responsibility for taking care of a loved one, and take time for themselves, knowing the client is still being cared for. It gives everyone involved some peace of mind and independence.
