Home Health Aide

Certified Home Health Aides help with basic daily activities like getting in and out of bed, dressing, bathing, grooming, hair care, nail care, assistance with ambulation, changing position in bed, assistance with transfer from bed to wheelchair, oral hygiene, changing bed linens of an incontinent beneficiary, shaving, skin care with lotions and/or powder, foot care, ear care, feeding/eating, and assistance with ambulation to bathroom.

Home Health Aides may assist with activities that are directly supportive of skilled therapy services but do not require the skills of a therapist to be safely and effectively performed. Examples of such activities include routine maintenance exercises and repetitive speech routines to support speech-language pathology services.
