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 DC home health aides (HHAs), or in Maryland and Virginia, as certified nurse assistants (CNAs). 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. Those seeking home care aide services in DC may contact Home Care Partners directly to be added to our waiting list.
Each client is assigned either a social work or nurse case manager. The Case Manager oversees the client’s home care aides and coordinates other services. 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.
