The Benefits of a Home Health Aide

One of the most difficult health decisions for many people is whether to stay at home and use the services of a home health aide, or whether to move into a long term care facility. Hiring a home health aide has several advantages:


Many older people are understandably lonely, especially if they have been widowed or have lost most of their older friends. An aide in the home can be a much needed companion, and can be a much better solution than moping about and longing for company.

The Best in Care

Losing your balance and falling, or finding it difficult to get up and down the stairs are inevitable consequences of getting older, when your body simply isn’t capable of doing what it used to. A home health aide is trained to not only handle medical emergencies and look after your overall health, but also help you with your mobility if needed.

Running Errands

Many older people understandably find it difficult to run even the simplest errands, such as washing and ironing clothes, running to the store for a few groceries, and cooking meals. Home health aides will do all this as well as helping you to wash and bathe and assisting you with much needed physical therapy.


Your home health aide will only come to your home as and when needed, a big difference from living in a facility where you are monitored constantly day and night. It means that you will receive the best in medical attention when you need it, but still retain a degree of independence, something that is important to many older people.

Of course, you don’t want to risk your own health or safety, or the health of your elderly parents or loved ones, meaning that you should take the time to choose a reliable and experienced provider. Charter Health Care is a reputable company, and there are many others in your area offering reliable home health care services.

    I pretty much agree with this article for I have many relatives who are in the health industry. My brother is a nurse. The only thing that he has to contend with are the mood swings of his old patients.

  2. MIco Robin says:

    This article tackles older patients which is fine. I guess what I am saying is I would like to see cases of special people how it is handled old or not. Look taking care of the elderly is noble nut people with special needs require as much attention if not more.

  3. Shonda says:

    I reckon the trend nowadays is for old people to stay put at home instead of being put in nursing facilities. Best if there’s a nurse or caregiver who can look after them so I totally agree with this article. But I hope costs could be more affordable.

  4. Maripaz says:

    I can’t imagine placing our abuela in a nursing home. We are a big, extended family where there’s an abundance of people willing to look after the old ones. But we don’t mind the community nursing dropping by every now on then to check on her.

  5. Mau says:

    I’m not old enough to need a home health aide but I could see myself with one someday. It would help older people a lot to feel the comfort of having help when needed but at the same time retain a sense of independence.

  6. Yuen Ling Elaine Au Yeung says:

    “Home health aides will do all this as well as helping you to wash and bathe and assisting you with much needed physical therapy.” What I think that, if there are bath-aide accessories to install at
    the old age person’s home, it might be helpful for the qualified professional to help him/her for bathing.

  7. Jinnel Huff says:

    I can’t agree enough about the importance of hiring a home care worker from a reputable and reliable agency. To pick one randomly is courting disaster. Anyone can put up an ad these days with the help of the internet and because so often, these ads look just as professional as one put up by a registered agency, it can be easy to be fooled. But as with anything else, buyer beware. An unregistered, uncertified nurses aide may cause more harm than they do good. Be sure to look into the background and qualifications of any person or agency you deal with.

    • Rosco says:

      I agree. Checking into background and qualifications is vitally important. Not doing so would be a major risk to the safety of a patient.

  8. Linda A. says:

    Oftentimes, patients simply need companionship. And that can go a long way in helping to contribute toward the healing process of a patient. I see that a home care aide plays an important role in the process.

  9. Scott says:

    I think elders would much rather stay in the comfort of their own home than in some nursing home. At least I think most of them would, so a home health care aide is a good option for many people.

  10. Victoria says:

    I think I can handle this type of career. I already do many of these things for my elders now. I LOVE helping people get well and fell better!

  11. Cicily B. says:

    Sounds like the nursing field and home health care aides are in high demand. I have been hearing a lot about this is the media lately. Definitely worth checking into.
