Home Health Aide (HHA) work under the supervision of an Administrator or Director of Nursing. The aide is part of an interdisciplinary team that provides care for those suffering from chronic conditions, disabilities and/ or illness. The HHA is responsible for following the plan of care that was created by their supervisor. The goal of a HHA is to assist the client to remain as independent as possible, in the comfort of their home environment. Tasks performed by a HHA are: light housekeeping, meal preparation, companionship, transportation, observation and recording, measurement of vital signs, assisting or performing the activities of daily living, and function as a liaison between the patient/resident/client and the home care agency. The home health aide is the "eyes and ears" for the rest of the team.

The aide interacts with the client/resident/client most frequently, whether it is one visit a week or daily. HHA's are a great asset to any home care agency. For those of you who desire to make an impact on people that are sick, disabled and/or elderly this could be the perfect career choice.
