Personal Care Aide, Home Health Aide, Home Care Professional
Personal Care Aides assist patients with self-care and everyday tasks as well as provide some clients with much needed companionship. Personal care aides are sometimes known by other titles, including caregiver, companion, and personal attendant. They often perform tasks similar to those of home health aides; however, they cannot provide any type of medical-related services.
Home Health Aides (HHAs) help patients with personal necessities like
dressing, bathing, and hygiene needs. By assisting with housekeeping and other
IADLs (instrumental activities of daily life) like cooking and laundry, HHAs
enable clients to live safely in their own homes, greatly improving their
quality of life in the process. They are also able to take vital signs, give medications, and
perform basic wound dressing changes as needed.
Home Care Professional Prerequisite: Home health aide. This designation continues professional development with a focus on management of other home health aides and personal care aides. A home care professional works closely with the clients doctor to build and manage a personal health care plan.
