Personal Care

Assist with activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, eating, grooming, moving from one place to another, going to the toilet and cleaning up afterward.
Check vital signs such as blood pressure, respiration and pulse. Monitor a client including his or her physical and mental condition, level of exercise, as well as how much the client is eating, drinking and going to the bathroom.
Handle emergencies such as an accident, heart attack or stroke.
Home health aides do not provide services such as physical and occupational therapy or skilled nursing care, but they are often tasked with observing your loved one’s health, and reporting on conditions to a registered nurse or other health care professional.
