Be the key to our wonderful clients by helping them remain happy and healthy in their own homes! Responsible for providing comprehensive care including aspects of both housekeeping and personal care, which are incidental to the care provided.
Home Health Aides (HHA)
The main responsibility of an HHA is to provide personal care. HHAs can help elderly adults with daily tasks such as bathing, getting dressed, preparing meals, eating, and hygiene needs. HHAs are usually required to get a certification after taking the necessary classes at a vocational school or college. HHAs can be very helpful to elderly adults around the house and can provide companionship. HHAs are not nurses and do not provide medication.
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA)
CNAs receive the same training in giving personal care as HHAs do, but they also receive additional medical training. Like HHAs, CNAs get a certification after completing their training at a vocational school or college and passing an exam. Like HHAs, CNAs can assist elderly adults with bathing, getting dressed, preparing meals, eating, and hygiene needs while also providing companionship. In addition to these tasks, CNAs are able to help elderly adults move into and out of wheelchairs, into and out of bed, change their position in bed.
