Helping clients in the comfort of their homes

As a home health aide, you’ll engage in a variety of tasks that center around providing personal care and health-related services to patients who are unable to perform these tasks for themselves. You may also jump in to help with clients’ household chores, including laundry, light cleaning, and meal preparation. Registered nurses and/or social workers typically oversee and supervise the work of home health aides.

Although this isn’t an easy career, it can be very rewarding. Caregiving is a very demanding position, and as a home health aide, you’ll be able to lighten the workload and burden that patients and their families experience. You’ll be able to give them peace of mine and make a life-changing difference to people who need your help.

Home Health Aides Promote Independence


Home health aides are health care workers trained to provide basic care to people who are unable to care for themselves. In fact, roughly eight out of 10 people who need long-term care can get it right at home with the care of a home health aide. The role you play may help your clients stay at home and out of facilities longer. Some of the main tasks you’ll complete center around activities of daily living (ADL), which include things like eating, bathing, and dressing. You’ll also check their vital signs, and monitor their physical and psychological well-being.

The Home Health Aide program is open to all persons who meet the following requirements:
