Frequently Asked Questions

What does a home health aide do?

At a certain time of your life, you will experience mobility issues that restrict your ability to carry on your day to day routine. A home health aide is a caregiver that provides a range of services which allow you to function in the comfort of your own home, rather than go to a nursing facility. These services may include assistance with aspects of your daily routine such as dressing, bathing and grooming, medication administration, wound care, meal preparation, personal care and light housekeeping, as well as assistance with running errands, transportation to and from medical appointments, social engagements and shopping for groceries. These essential services provide you with a higher sense of independence while promoting health and wellness.

Why do I need home care?

Home care is perfect for situations where an aging loved one requires a little extra help for their daily routine, and takes the burden from the shoulders of family members. However, home care is also ideal for situations where a person is recovering from a hospital stay or following an accident, where mobility is limited. With home care, a professional caregiver assists with many aspects of daily care, on a schedule that suits the patient perfectly. Home care is designed to enhance the sense of independence for a person so that they can remain living in their own home in order to promote an improved quality of life.
