A home health aide (HHA) assists people with chronic illnesses or disabilities with the daily necessities of life. If you have been struggling to take care of yourself or someone close to you, an HHA can make the difference between sacrificing quality of life and being able to significantly improve it.
Your Hands of Hope Home HHA can assist with:
It can be embarrassing to ask a family member for help with small grooming tasks like shaving, cutting nails, or practicing good oral hygiene, and some struggling individuals may prefer to forgo them instead. An HHA can provide practical help in a compassionate manner, enabling patients to feel more like themselves again.
Even more than basic grooming, hygiene can be a difficult issue for vulnerable people. Bathing and daily hygiene tasks are always important but can be especially vital in cases where an injury or illness are present.
It’s crucial to overall health and wellness to bathe and use the restroom, and an HHA helps you do so safely and consistently.
Your HHA can also aid in preparing meals, especially in circumstances where specific nutrition needs require a customized dietary plan. Meal preparation helps remove all the guesswork and makes food adjustments much easier.
Environment plays a major role in health, so your HHA can keep your space tidy for your safety as well as doing some laundry or cleaning as needed.
An important aspect of nonmedical care is the very human need for connection and cognitive stimulation. An HHA can keep you engaged and provide variety for your day-to-day.
If you need more specialized medical care, such as checking your vitals or changing wound dressings, Hands of Hope offers certified nursing assistant (CNA) services.
Medicaid recipients qualify if they are under a physician’s care and the provider prescribes home health services, particularly for a condition or disability that significantly impacts daily living.
