Home Health Aide

The job of a home health aide (HHA) is to help someone live independently in their homes by assisting with activities of daily living, among other responsibilities. It’s important and very rewarding work. Not only are you helping someone to stay in the home environment in which they’re most comfortable, but home health care is actually more cost-effective for the person, because the care is tailored to the needs of the individual.
