Home health aides are highly professional and extremely valuable members of Open Door’s staff. They make a positive influence on the lives of our senior and disabled clients by providing compassionate care and daily assistance right at the patients’ residence.
Our aides operate to make sure that senior and handicapped individuals are able to receive the kind of personal care and medical assistance they need right at home. Additionally, they help with household chores and ensure the companionship a lot of older and disabled adults lack.
Just as any other senior home care worker, a private home health care aide provides the services requested by clients. Therefore, the tasks they perform for different patients might not be the same. However, the standard list of a senior home health aide responsibilities looks like this:
It’s worth to mention that home health aides aren’t allowed to perform basic medical treatments. They often team up with certified nurses to provide that kind of senior care.
In order to work as a certified home health aide with Open Door Home Care, one has to be proficient in English, have a high school degree and proven working experience as a certified health aide, obtain nursing skills, go through the first aid training and obtain a current CPR certificate. Our health aides are also required to have a driver’s license, skills to monitor patient’s vital signs and know basic personal hygiene and nutrition standards. Kind personality and good temper are important for us as well.
Therefore, you may be sure that when hiring a health aide through our senior home care agency, you’ll be matched with the most qualified, compassionate professional in the State of New York.
