When illness or injury strikes, suddenly the simplest tasks can seem more complicated, or even hazardous. Whether you're trying to navigate your own recovery, or you have a loved one who has chronic health issues, a home health aide in Albany can help in numerous ways. 

At Interim HealthCare of Albany, our home care services include home health care for clients who need help managing a health condition, along with all the other demands of daily life. The best way to find the right care professional for your needs is to speak to a provider directly, but it helps to have a general understanding of what a home health aide in Albany can do for you. 

The Role of a Home Health Aide in Albany

Being able to receive care at home has many benefits for seniors and people with ongoing health issues. It often means fewer trips to hospitals and clinics, in part because complications can be spotted early.

Our home health aides have undergone health training approved by the state, so they can perform some basic health care duties like checking vitals. In addition, they can help with the activities of daily living that you may already associate with home care. 

Your home care should be tailored to your exact circumstances. Tasks can include:

  • Monitoring your condition over time and reporting to the Registered Nurse
  • Providing medication reminders
  • Preparing meals that meet your dietary needs
  • Taking you to your medical appointments
  • Helping you with bathing, dressing, and going to the bathroom
  • Managing certain chores like buying groceries, running errands, and doing laundry
