In certain instances a live-in CHHA may be appropriate, usually for purposes of safety and companionship. In such cases, the Generations CHHA provides all the support of the hourly CHHA in home service.
We will construct an appropriate schedule that conforms to the client’s needs, with consideration for the aide’s circumstances as well as the requirements of federal and state wage and hour laws. In some instances, it may be appropriate to assign more than one aide to a client.
After the Generations nurse does the comprehensive assessment in conjunction with the client and her/his family, we will recommend the schedule and structure we believe best meets the client’s needs and wants.
Home Care Services
Our CHHA can ensure the client takes her/his medication as prescribed.
The CHHA will help, as appropriate, with bathing, toileting and personal grooming.
Ensuring a proper program of exercise can be a daily highlight for the client.
While the CHHA is NOT a housekeeper she/he will do some light housekeeping and laundering.
By arrangement, the CHHA can run simple errands such as grocery shopping or accompanying the client to the bank or drug store, etc
Frequently this is the most critical function for the CHHA, from chatting to playing board games to specially designed mental acuity and memory exercises. It entails being someone reliable, patient, supportive and caring, someone who can fill-in for the family or primary caregiver.
While the CHHA is not primarily a chef she/he will do some light meal preparation; ensuring proper nutrition can be very important to clients.
