Industry


The home healthcare industry is comprised of a wide range of caregivers from registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech therapist, social workers, home care aides and other caregivers as necessary on a case by case basis.

Home healthcare agencies use registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech therapist and social workers to assign specific duties and supervise home care aides. Home care aides keep records of services performed and of consumer’s condition and progress. Home care aides report changes in the consumer’s condition to the supervisor or case manager. In carrying out their work, aides cooperate with health care professionals, including registered nurses, therapists, and other medical staff.

Home care aides help people who are elderly, disabled, ill and/or mentally disabled to live in their own homes or in residential care facilities instead of in long-term care facilities or institutions. Most home care aides work with elderly or physically or mentally disabled consumers who need more extensive personal and home care than family or friends can provide. Some home care aides work with families in which a parent is incapacitated and small children need care. Others help discharged hospital consumers who have relatively short-term needs.

Home care aides (also called homemakers, caregivers, companions and personal attendants) provide housekeeping and routine personal care services. They clean consumers’ houses, do laundry and change bed linens. Home care aides may plan meals (including special diets), shop for food and cook. Home care aides also may help consumers get out of bed, bathe, dress and groom. Some accompany consumers to doctors’ appointments or on other errands.
