A home health aide offers continuous assistance to patients who are elderly or suffering from an illness that affects their ability to perform everyday tasks. Home health aides are trained to assist and care for patients in their own homes by providing a variety of services that make it easier and more comfortable for the patients to live how they want. They will make sure their patients take their medications and are taken to their doctor appointments on time. They will also pick up groceries, cook, clean, do laundry, and if needed they will assist patients with using the restroom and bathing.
How do Home Health Aides Handle Emergency Situations?
Home Health Aides are trained to be able to handle emergency situations in the most professional manner. In emergency situations, it is important to be prepared and not panic. Home health aides should assess the emergency and handle the situation correctly. They know first aid and will contact emergency services immediately if a situation arises. It is a protocol to have their phones charged and to inform the patient’s emergency contacts about the situation. In an emergency situation, it is crucial to have someone with you who can help.
