Homehealth Aide Services
Home health aides work under the supervision of a registered nurse or therapist. Services primarily consist of assistance with personal care. A home health aide may give a bath, give oral care, foot care, shampoo, shave, skin care, and change linens. Under Medicare, a home health aide may stay in the home for a limited time or for a visit only, and is authorized to provide personal care only.
The social services staff provides social casework services to clients as needed to augment other services of the agency. Services include the evaluation of social functioning, particularly as it relates to medical problems, and initiation and follow-up of referrals to other community resources as applicable.
