What are Home Health Aide (HHA) Services?
Home Health Aides, or HHAs, provide “non-skilled home care” services to assist with activities of daily living (ADLs). Examples of non-skilled care include assistance with eating, ambulating, dressing, and bathing. This type of care is sometimes referred to as personal care or custodial care. Home Health Aides are usually not allowed to provide “skilled care”. Examples of skilled care include wound care, administering insulin shots, and suctioning tracheostomies.
What does a home health aide do?
HHAs assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) including Dressing, Bathing, Eating, Transferring, Toileting, and Continence related needs. They may also assist with other tasks such as meal preparation, shopping, and light housekeeping. Generally, a nurse will create a “plan of care” which the home health aide follows.
Paying for Services
Who pays for HHA services?
Medicare, Medicaid, Long-Term Care Insurance, Private Health Insurance, and Private Payment are all mediums that may provide payment for services. However, there are often significant differences between these methods with regards to the circumstances under which services may be covered, the amount of services covered, or the duration for which services may covered.
At Edison Home Health Care, one of our specialists can help you understand what sort of coverage you may already be eligible for. If you do not have sufficient coverage for your home care needs, we provide free assistance with applying for coverage through Medicaid.
