Home Health Aides
When looking for a trained compassionate “people” person to provide essential care services, a Home Health Aide is the one. Home Health Aides provide direct patient care such as bathing, dressing, bathroom assistance, and exercising. They also provide domestic services such as meal preparation, grocery shopping, and light housekeeping. Some clients, such as dementia patients, require a Home Health Aide to be on duty around the clock. A Home Health Aide may spend the entire day socially isolated with a client who cannot talk. Home Health Aides also provide companionship to individuals who rarely leave the home and may have little social contact.
Certified Nursing Assistant
When looking for a trained compassionate person with formal training, you’ll find the Certified Nursing Assistant. Certified Nursing Assistants perform many tasks also such as bathing, dressing, bathroom assistance, and exercising. Along with the domestic tasks, they also provide medical assistance with equipment and monitoring the client’s behavior and well-being. Their communications skills help provide a channel with the client, physician, and the family.
Licensed Practical Nurses
These nurses care for the injured, sick, convalescent, and disabled clients. They provide basic nursing care such as bathing, dressing, and personal hygiene. They undergo clinical instruction which allows them to provide medical care such as bedsore treatments, enemas, injections, and tube feedings. They can also perform dressing changes, ice packs, and monitor catheters and drains. They also have keen observation skills to report medication side effects and provide client progress reports.
When in need of a nurse that is benevolent, caring, detailed, and has problem solving skills, look for a Registered Nurse. These nurses care for clients, administer medications, and communicate with physician’s and other medical professionals to devise an individual care plan on the client. They will monitor and assess client’s needs to provide the best possible care. They also have teaching skills to educate the clients how to manage their illnesses.
