Home Health Aide

Who is a Home Health Aide?

A certified Home Health Aide (HHA) delivers care for elders and adults in need in their homes to make them feel comfortable. A health aide can be a companion to the senior citizens and help them live their days with ease by skimping on the transition and disruption of moving to a senior living camp or retirement community. The Home health aides at Caregivers have licensed health professionals, who are highly trained and experienced. They are at your service to work with elders to retain their independence & comfort to assure that necessary daily needs are met. They use transparent communication with the patient and their families to build a strong bond and help the patient not isolate themselves, which can result in a positive outcome for the patient’s rapid recovery.
