Home Health Aides
Our Home Health Aides work under the supervision of the Registered Nurse or Therapist. Home Health Aides are paraprofessionals who have received specialized training for certification as a Home Health Aide, and who meet State of Minnesota standards.
Some of the primary tasks performed by home health aides include:
- Personal cares: Bathing, grooming, oral hygiene, saving, hair-skin-nail cares and dressing
- Walking, transfers and bowel/bladder support
- Meal planning, preparation and support with eating
- Foot care
- Medication reminders
- Range of motion exercises and assist with home exercise programs
Home Health Aides are certified, bonded and insured. We take special care to ensure all aides have the appropriate experience and skills while ensuring we match the right caregiver with each client. We provide periodic in-service training and professional development opportunities in order to retain the best Home Health Aides. RN Case Managers also perform periodic supervisory visits to ensure our clients' Plan of Care is appropriately monitored and updated.
