Home Care Aide Services
Home care aides assist with tasks that help clients manage their daily routines. Based on a personalized plan of care, our aides are assigned to help with such duties as personal care-- bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, or toileting; medication reminders; range of motion exercises; preparing and serving nutritious meals; light house cleaning, laundry; shopping and errands; escort to appointments; and companionship and supervision. Our aides have received certification as home health aides, or in Maryland and Virginia, as certified nurse assistants. They have been trained in dementia care and receive continuing education annually to update their skills and learn new techniques in home care.
In general, those seeking home care aide services in Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Arlington Counties and the Veterans Administration must apply through the partnering agency to obtain home care aide services.
Case Management Support
All of our home care aides are supervised by either a social work or nurse case manager. When first meeting a client, the Case Manager conducts an assessment to determine what services are needed and develop a Plan of Care, which will describe the duties the home care aide will perform.
