HCA is best suited to provide this type of care. Health Care Aides work independently with their clients. They help people with terminal illnesses, or debilitating conditions and disabilities, who cannot care for themselves. Health Care Aides help clients live more comfortably, safely, and independently. In many cases, they help seniors stay longer in their own homes, instead of moving into a care home. They also keep nurses informed of any changes in their client’s condition or behavior - and ensure they get medical attention right away. Health Care Aides are trained to perform lifts, transfers, and other personal assistance so that they can safely help patients with the following:
Bathing and grooming
Ambulation Assistance (repositioning, transferring)
Incontinence Assistance and more ...
Health Care Aides also provide the following services:
Light housekeeping and laundry
Meal planning and preparation
Escorting to medical appointments and social events
