What Services Do Home Health Aides Perform?

Home health aides provide supportive services geared toward helping a senior to age safely at home. Working as part of a multidisciplinary team and generally overseen by a registered or licensed nurse, aides typically assist seniors with personal care tasks and other beneficial activities. Services may include assistance with:

  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Getting dressed
  • Using the toilet
  • Eating
  • Exercising

Unlike regular home care aides, home health aides generally don’t perform domestic duties or help with instrumental activities of daily living.
