Career Insight

What does a Home Health Aide Professional do?

Home Health Aide Professionals wear a lot of hats. In addition to providing basic and preventative healthcare, they also serve as companions, assistants, and, in many ways, as therapists to clients who cannot handle some daily living or self-care tasks on their own. Home health aides help people who are disabled, chronically ill, or cognitively impaired. They often help older adults who need assistance. If you have a nurturing nature and love to serve others, you’ll thrive in this rewarding field.

Some, but certainly not all of the responsibilities you might fulfill, include:

Assisting clients with daily tasks including bathing, dressing, organizing, and scheduling

Cooking meals and grocery shopping

Taking and recording vitals

Managing and dispensing medications

Housekeeping duties – cleaning & laundry

COURSE OVERVIEW

Home Health Aide Professional

Home Health Aides work directly with individuals in their homes to provide assistance with daily living and self-care tasks. In some states, home health aides may be able to give a client medication or check the client’s vital signs under the direction of a nurse or other health care practitioner.

This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the Home Health Aide profession through the use of theoretical and practical applications. Students will learn about the medical and social needs of home healthcare clients, as well as the nutrition, personal care, cleaning, and infection control tasks required of Home HealthAides.

Upon completion of this course, students will be fully prepared to begin working with clients in their homes. In addition, this course will provide an initial educational foundation for students preparing to take state licensing or certification exams. However, since the requirements for each state differ, students will have to conduct their own research to determine state-specific certification requirements. Depending on the state requirements, the student may need to complete additional coursework or additional licensing requirements (e.g.externship or other work experience) beyond the completion of this course.
