Home Health & Personal Care Aides help people who are disabled, chronically ill, or cognitively impaired. They also help older adults who may need assistance. They help with activities such as bathing, dressing, and housekeeping.
The reason for visits by the home health aide is to provide care of the patient or services needed to maintain the patient's health or to facilitate treatment of the patient's illness or injury.
Bathing, dressing, grooming, caring for hair, nail, and oral hygiene which are needed to facilitate treatment or to prevent deterioration of the patient's health

Feeding, assistance with elimination (including enemas unless skills of licensed nurse are required to the patient's condition, routine catheter care and routine colostomy care), assistance with ambulation, repositioning the patients in bed, and assisting with transfers
Home Health Aide services are those services ordered in the plan of care that the aide is permitted to perform under state law
