Home Health Aide

When restrictions of aging, disability, chronic illness or cognitive difficulty make it challenging for individuals to care fully for themselves at home, home health aides can assist. A home health aide improves the quality of life for people through professional, hands-on care and compassionate kindness. For many Right at Home clients, a home health aide or caregiver becomes a trusted friend.

Home health aides with specialized training can administer a client’s medication or check vital signs under the direction of a registered nurse or other medical professional. Qualified home health aides may also change bandages and dressings and help with medical equipment. Typically, when in-home clients need skilled health care, home health aides are trained as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) or Patient Care Assistant (PCA).*

Role of a Home Health Aide

Home health aides provide everything from companionship to basic health assistance, including:

  • Bathing and dressing
  • Light housekeeping (laundry, vacuuming, etc.)
  • Medication monitoring
  • Grocery shopping
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Transportation to doctor’s offices and other appointments
  • Companionship visits
  • Organization of schedules and appointments
  • Physical exercise and at-home therapy exercises

In addition, many home health aides are also trained to check pulse, temperature, respiration, help with braces or artificial limbs and perform a number of skilled nursing duties.

Home health aides can also help with specific in-home care needs related to:

  • Alzheimer’s and Other Related Dementia
  • Hypertension/Stroke Recovery
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer Recovery
  • Hospice/Palliative Support

"Recently I was in need of assistance going to St Mary’s Emergency Hospital. I made the right decision and called Right at Home. Based on my experience last September, immediately I was placed in the capable, competent, and caring hands of Charles. From start to finish some six hours, Charlie was constantly at my side, anticipating every need, and accommodating in every instance. I know could not have managed without him. I am more grateful than I am able to express. His calm, steady and knowledgeable presence was necessary and made my situation a pleasant experience as it could be. Charles is an “Old World Gentleman “ the type of person so very rare to see in today’s society. Such a person needs to be celebrated and I write this letter as a testimonial to him and Right at Home."

"I can’t say enough for the folks at Right at Home when I needed the services it provided most. They were the only agency to indicate immediate availability in providing care when my husband left the hospital and needed in-home care right away. I could not have managed without Michael, Greg and William for the two weeks they provided care for my husband and assistance to me. Each of them, in their own way, established a bond and trust relationship with my husband. Even though their time with him was unfortunately short. "...." "I would recommend this agency without equivocation to anyone seeking peace of mind and assistance with their loved ones who are not able to care for themselves."

"It is local. I met with several managers and franchise owners, and they were the most approachable. I like that it is small, which makes it personal. They have been good at following up with me. They have listened to what we have needed. The office has been able to do everything required of them. I appreciate that they listen."
