Supporting Independence at Home

Personal care, bathing and light housekeeping can become very overwhelming to those who are elderly, have disabilities or have chronic health conditions. Home Health Aide services help individuals maintain their safety and independence while helping delay or prevent the need to transition into a higher level of care, such as a skilled nursing facility. 

Our services promote independence at home, decrease fall risks and foster health and wellbeing, which in turn leads to better healthcare management for the individual. The strong bonds VNA home health aides make with clients are critical to creating an environment of trust. This connection allows the creation of individualized care and goals.

These services are crucial for vulnerable individuals. Our team serves those with or without family support and those who may have limited financial resources. With the assistance of United Way of the Midlands, we are able to care for individuals who are uninsured or otherwise unable to afford or access services.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for Home Health Aide services?

Individuals who have a history of falls or physical limitations, have safety issues such as getting in and out of the shower, or who have limited family support or are living alone may be eligible for our services.

What services are provided?

Home health aides provide non-nursing services like bathing, personal hygiene, therapeutic care and light housekeeping. Services are conducted in the client’s residence.

How is a plan of care created?

A plan of care is created based upon the following concepts: promoting the client’s health, wellness and responsibility for their own care, as well as the client’s activity and responsibility within their daily routine. A motivated client and a consistent caregiver working through this together contributes to the success of our program.
