What is a Home Health Aide?
A home health aide is a type of caregiver who offers assistance performing day-to-day tasks. Home health aides visit clients in their homes on a daily or as needed basis, assisting them with tasks such as grooming, getting dressed, bathing, and other hygiene needs. They may also perform light housekeeping duties, such as washing and folding laundry as well as preparing meals. The goal of a home health aide is to assist in completing the tasks needed for their clients to stay safe while maintaining independence in their own homes.
