Description

Home Health Aide Overview

A Home Health Aide (HHA) may also be known as a Home Caregiver or Residential Assistant (RA). An HHA provides basic, personal care and health-related services to a variety of individuals (patients) who require more assistance than family and/or friends are able to provide. HHAs are part of a category of occupations that is commonly referred to as direct care workers. The services/care that a Home Health Aide provides depends upon their specialty area.

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a home health aide, our in-depth curriculum could help you learn important fundamental, practical skills involved in a career as a home health aide. For each patient, an HHA is responsible for recording services performed, as well as the patient’s condition and progress.
