A Dedication to Home Health Aides
It’s not every day you meet the people responsible for giving the important ones in our lives the care they deserve. These undercover professionals often go unnoticed in their daily struggles. I wanted to dedicate this message to the Home Health Aides I’ve encountered both in the classroom during their vigorous training sessions and outside the classroom where their expertise is put to the test. They are the front lines to the medical field, and they deserve the utmost respect for the services they provide throughout the United States.
Home Health Aides are caregivers who assist in day to day care for those in need. They allow loved ones to stay in the comfort of their home without the concern or stress of being left alone. Being at home, has proven to be beneficial for those in recovery from sickness or other illnesses. The level of comfort and familiarity of the surroundings can be therapeutic for several patients.
In addition to the care services they provide those in need, they are trained in various types of care services. Their other duties include household prowess of laundry, preparing meal, bathing, or other personal necessities. They act as in-house nurses. Their given responsibilities by a Registered Nurse to be followed as the doctor specified. As medical health professionals at the front of health care, they are considered the future of health care services. The idea of receiving care at home has been a thought
Home Health Aides go through difficult times especially with their patients. Their patients are not the easiest to deal and at times, the work load can be stressful. I’ve encountered Home Health Aides who do their work with compassion despite the hectic and busy schedules they might have. It takes great patience to be a Home Health Aide. It’s a trait that deserves admiration.
The next time you come in contact with a Home Health Aide give them a big thank you. Their duties are not easy, and it can sometimes be overwhelming. However, their services are what allow our loved ones to stay at home and cared for.
