Home Health Aide NH

When you live in NH or the northeast part of the US, you’ll likely find that there are more doctors per capita than in other parts of the country.  That makes for more nurses, and home health aides, many of which help elderly seniors right in their home, or in a care facility.  Regardless of where care is received, you need to know when to call for a home health aide, and whether they are right for your needs.

Home Care Illinois

If you’re in need of an Illinois home care worker and you’re new to the world of senior care, you may have already discovered that there are two kinds of home-based care:  Home Care Helpers and Home Care Nurses (which provide Nursing services).

A Home Care Helper is typically provided by a certified nurse’s assistant (CNA), who can assist with everyday basic tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, and helping mom dress, bathe, and use the bathroom. A CNA can also remind the senior to take her prescription medications, but cannot dispense those meds. These kinds of homemaker services agencies may or may not be licensed depending on the agency, and whether they are following the specified requirements of Illinois.
