Should your plan of care call for a home health aide, we have certified home health aides who will provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) such as bathing, dressing and meals. They also provide companionship along with support services that are essential to a patient’s comfort and well-being.

Many of our aides are bilingual or multilingual, and we always do our best to match patients with a home health aide who speaks their language.
