Home Health Aide
Home Health Aide (HHA) is a trained and certified health-care worker who provides general assistance to patients in an in-home setting. These individuals typically work under the guidance of a supervising nurse, and provide care, as needed, to improve the patients quality of life. Some of the care that a Home Health Aide can assist with includes general activities of daily living, bathing, general skin care, and light household duties. They also provide a continuous assessment of a patients condition to provide quick assistance should a patient deteriorate.
