By Harold Spencer Subscribe to RSS | July 16th 2012 | Views:

What does Home health aid and what is the work of home health aid? Home health aides provide routine health care such as changing of dressing of wounds and bandages, and applying topical medications to elderly, seriously ill or to disabled peoples at the home of or in a care facility. They monitor or report the changes in the health status of client or patient. They can also offer special care like bathing, grooming, and dressing of patient.

With services as like light housekeeping. In some places, home health aides can be able to give medication to a client or check the vital signs of a client according to the directions a nurse or some other health care practitioner. Home health care works in variety of environments. Mostly they work in client’s home; other works in communities or small group homes.

If you want to be a home health aid then you do not need formal or specific education for this work. Home health aides work in certified agencies that give formal training to workers. And you have to pass a test conducted by the agencies. After that you can work with those agencies. These agencies can provide you clients or patients whom you can take care of. Home health aid agencies offer a good pay scale to their workers.

The pay can be less for first time but it will increase gradually according to the experience you have. But home health companies take some percent of your pay as commission. Your pay decides according to your work. You can work full time, part time, or only some days in week. Some companies offer this to their clients if they need home health aides for some hours, days or weeks.

One from this type of services is growing very fast in New York that is New York home attendant. This covers a type of home care service that called personal care assistance. The work of home attendant is similar to the home health aides but only having a small different.

For becoming a home health aid person doesn’t need a specific eligibility but for becoming a home attendant, the person has to work under a Medicaid officer or work in Medicaid office for number of hours per week. Then the person can be eligible to become a home attendant. The home health aides are not skilled but New York home attendant are semi skilled. So they do not have to work under nurse. And they can take better care of patient.
