Have you or a loved one been ill or injured recently? Is it more challenging than it used to be to keep up with all the household chores, not to mention caring for yourself? If you could use some help, you’ve found the right place.
Boynton Beach Home Care offers professional home health aide (HHA) and certified nursing assistant (CNA) care services for seniors and people with complications, chronic illness, or age-related problems generally. We will not only help with your health and things at home — our services will give you a renewed outlook.
Our Certified Nursing Assistant and Home Health Aide Services
Sometimes, two helpers are better than one. While one is keeping your home looking its best, the other can be giving you the personal attention you need. We’ll explain the responsibilities of each.
Home Health Aide (HHA)
An HHA’s caregiver responsibilities center on providing companionship, running errands, and assisting patients in non-medical ways.
These responsibilities include:
- Non-medical personal care
- Assisting with mobility
- Teaching family members about safety precautions
- Giving medication reminders and picking up prescriptions
- Escorting patients to appointments or meetings
- Moving and lifting patients as required
- Cleanliness and infection control in the home
- Providing nutritional advice as appropriate
- Performing emergency procedures or finding someone who can
Only 13% of HHA’s meet our strict hiring requirements. They have received certifications, have years of experience in the field and receive customized training for client needs, and are background checked.
Some specialize in working with certain conditions only (e.g., Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.). We spend a lot of time ensuring they are matched correctly with the clients regarding personality, activity/hobby preferences, experience, health condition, etc. So, in other words, only the best.
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
A CNA’s caregiver responsibilities overlap with those of an HHA to some extent, assisting with household needs and providing companionship for the patient.
A CNA’s responsibilities include:
- Observing and noting any changes in patients’ behavior
- Feeding, bathing, and dressing patients
- Taking patients’ vital signs — such as temperature and blood pressure
- Serving meals and sometimes helping patients eat
- Managing medications and doctor appointments
- Light housekeeping
- Setting up medical equipment and assisting with its use
- Turning or repositioning people who stay in bed or use wheelchairs
- Researching conditions and treatment plans for caregivers, nurses, or doctors
- Diligently monitoring any troubling signs, such as bruises, blood, or wounds
- Cleaning up bedpans, soiled sheets, and linens
CNA’s have received both comprehensive medical training and certification, in addition to personal care training. As with HHA’s, we hire only those with clinical experience and have performed successfully in our rigorous interview screening. Like HHA’s, we make sure that our CNA’s are the best matches for the patients to whom we assign them.
Getting the Process Started
We begin with a phone call and then an RN home visit. Next, we develop a customized care plan. Then, we match you or your loved one with caregivers who have the skills and personalities to best support your goal requirements.
A registered nurse (RN) orients a patient’s care team, including the HHAs and CNAs, to that person’s needs. The nurse will do periodic home visits and do ongoing health assessments. The last step in getting started is taking care of the paperwork.
Praise From Our Clients
“Maria far exceeded my expectations for home health care. As it happens, I have seventeen years working in the home health care field and have never met a kinder, more knowledgeable, harder working aide. Her calm manner and confidence gave me what I needed to go forward.”
– Sheila F.
” I can’t thank you enough for the excellent care and attention you gave to my Dad. He was a man of few words but told me how much he liked and appreciated you. Thank you for being there with my Dad. You were a great comfort to him. I know you will continue to provide excellent, compassionate care.”
– Randi T.
Paying for Care
Given a choice, most people would prefer to remain in their own homes as they age or chronic conditions grow more challenging. Aging patients generally require more assistance with daily needs.
At Boynton Beach Home Care, we make companion care services for the elderly and disabled manageable for many. Since these are people who otherwise might have difficulty adjusting to senior care facilities, they see our work as life-changing.
When it’s time to pay for your or your loved one’s care, we have several options. Among them are long-term care or life insurance, health savings accounts, private payment, short-term care insurance, and veteran benefits.
