A home health aide is simply a caregiver who is certified or licensed to provide health care and provides the health care in the patient's home.
Home health aides are usually provided by a home health care company, however, it is possible to hire a private home health caregiver who works independently.
When looking to hire a home health aide it is important to check both options, a home health agency and private caregivers to find the best fit.
