Certified home health aides (CHHAs) are health workers dedicated to delivering personal care to clients with disabilities or other needs requiring assistance, typically directly in their homes or in an assisted living environment. While the elderly are the most common consumers for these services, CHHAs may work with younger individuals as well.
