The role of the home health aide is to assist with hygiene and bath visits under the direction of the nurse. Axiom’s Home Health Aides work hand in hand with the nurses and therapists for an individualized plan of care. They are trained in a variety of tasks. For example, they can assist with simple exercises. They may help patients with walking and transferring. Additionally, they may assist with activities of daily living or even simple dressing changes. Hygiene, grooming, and bathing are an important part of many patient care plans. These are the most common care elements requested of our home health aides.
