positive impact on the lives of the sick, disabled, and elderly, this could be a great position for
you to consider. Home health aides (HHAs) assist patients with completing important personal
tasks such as dressing, bathing and a variety of hygiene needs. Additional aspects of this position
include assisting clients to remain safe in their own homes by providing a higher level of
assistance with minor cleaning and instrumental activities of daily living such as cooking, light
housekeeping, and laundry.
