Home Health Aide
Home Health Aides learn how to monitor patients by observing physical and mental condition, intake and output, and exercise, while also supporting patients by providing housekeeping services.
Home health aides and personal care aides help people with disabilities, chronic illnesses, or cognitive impairment by assisting in their daily living activities. They often help older adults who need assistance. In some states, home health aides may be able to give a client medication or check the client’s vital signs under the direction of a nurse or other healthcare practitioner.
