Job Description for Home Health Care Provider

Most home health care providers (also known as home care assistants) provide in-home care for older adults, people with disabilities, and people with serious illness. They are usually categorized as home aides or personal aides. Home aides may help the client with shopping duties (including grocery or personal shopping), recreational activities, transportation to appointments such as doctor or salon visits, housekeeping, and cooking. Personal aides tend to the same matters as the home aides, but they also help dress, bathe, and perform other personal hygiene duties for their client.
