Home Health Aides (HHA) bring comfort and dignity to thousands of New Yorkers every day. Home Health Aides help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of in health care facilities. Under the direction of a nursing or medical staff, they provide health-related services. Like nursing aides, HHAs check patients’ pulse rate, temperature, and respiration rate; help with simple prescribed exercises; and help patients to get in and out of bed, bathe, dress, and groom. Occasionally, they change non-sterile dressings, give massages and provide skin care, or assist with braces and artificial limbs. Experienced Home Health Aides, with training, may also assist with medical equipment such as ventilators. Most HHAs work with elderly or disabled persons who need more extensive care than family or friends can provide. And some help discharged hospital patients who have relatively short-term needs. HHAs who have taken their home health aide classes in NY at ABC have found steady employment in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, NJ, Westchester and beyond.
Personal Care Aide Course
A personal care aide provides various services to a person who is unable to care for themselves on their own. These duties may include things like cooking food, picking up heavy objects, dressing, bathing, using the restroom, and performing simple housekeeping tasks. The main types of people that personal care aides serve are the physically disabled, the cognitively impaired, the chronically ill, and the elderly. Some personal care aides work with just one specific client, while others work with several clients individually. Other aides may work with multiple clients at the same time. For example, a live-in residential aid may only have one client. Another residential aide may travel between the homes of clients throughout the day.
