What Exactly Does A Home Care Aide Do?

March 22nd, 2011 No Comments

Studies show that people live longer and lead happier lives when they can stay in their own home as they age. You’ve heard of home care and believe it may be an option for you or your loved one(s), but what exactly does a home care aide do? This video from HealthCareerWeb shows an aide in action! While she’s not a “Visiting Angel,” the tasks the aide performs are typical of what you may expect when one of our Angels is in your home.

Our professionally-trained aides are certified and licensed in the state of New Jersey and have undergone vigorous background checks. They perform the following tasks…and much more!

  • Safety Supervision (assist with walking, getting in or out of bed, etc.)
  • Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
  • Veterans Care
  • Hygiene and Grooming Assistance
  • Meal Preparation & Serving
  • Housekeeping
  • Errands & Shopping
  • Pet Care Assistance
  • Caring Companionship
  • Respite Care for Families
