Home Health Aide
Our skilled, compassionate home health aides work one-on one with our clients at home assisting them with activities of daily living (ADL’s). Following the personalized care plan developed for the client by one of our nurses, home health aides provide health-related services, such as medication reminders, help with simple prescribed exercises; keep patients' rooms neat; and help patients move from bed, bath, dress, and groom. Occasionally, they change non-sterile dressings or assist with braces, walkers, and continence care. Some help discharged hospital patients who have relatively short-term needs.
At ABC Home Healthcare, our nurse team supervises home health aides, who keep records of the services they perform and record patients' condition and progress. They report changes in patients' conditions to the supervisor or case manager who will then update the plan of care to meet the changing needs.
We also have Home Health Aides with specialized training in Alzheimer's / Dementia (Alzheimer's Association's Alzheimer’s Supportive Home Care Training), Parkinson's Disease, Mental Health Supportive Training, Hospice and more.
