Certified Home Health Aide
Certified home health aides perform those household and health-related services that are essential to the patient's well-being and necessary to prevent or postpone institutionalization.
Before assigning an aide, we conduct a professional evaluation and assessment of each patient. This results in the development of a care plan, prepared in cooperation with the patient and family. We assign a R.N. Field Supervisor to oversee each case.
Our goal is to find the best possible match between aide and patient, with aides carefully selected depending on the needs, health and preferences of the patient. Our aides - who have been with us for an average of eight years, unheard of in the home care industry - treat their patients as if they were part of their own family.
Patients need not worry about aide turnover - a different person will not be coming into their home every week. In many cases, patients and aides have been together for years. This furthers complete comfort and trust.
All HomeCare Options' aides complete the NJ State Board of Nursing approved training course and pass both written and practical tests for competence. Aides always practice universal precautions and infection control techniques.

Transfers (bed to sofa, sofa to bathroom, etc.)
