Personal careIncludes bathing/ showers, oral care, skin care, nail care hair care, shaving, incontinence care, changing clothes, medication reminders and encouraging fluid intake. Home health aides may assist the client to walk independently or with a cane or walker. Our goal is to encourage the client to be as independent as possible but assist where it is needed. Each client has an individualized plan of care which is developed by the RN with the client/family.
