Home Health Aids
Home health aides care for physically, mentally ill, emotionally ill or injured people who wish to receive care in the comfort of their own home. Under the supervision of a Nurse, Home Health Aides assists with medications, check pulse, respiration and blood pressure rates, keep rooms neat, and help patients move, dress and bathe. Patients may be recently discharged from the hospital and only need short-term care, or require extensive care that Tenerness Health Care can help provide. Hours vary depending on patients’ needs, especially those who need around-the-clock care. This job requires strength, both physically and emotionally and our staff members have both. Home health aides may go to the same patient’s home for months or even years, but some aides also work with several different patients. Aides are given detailed instructions on how to care for each individual and are expected to follow them accordingly.
We are different because we care. Here is a acknowledgment from one of our clients..My caregiver makes me laugh and when it’s nice out she takes me for a walk. We do all sorts of things I don’t get to do when I’m alone by myself, and I like that.”. and we have many more comments like this.
