Home Health Aide

Definition

"Hands-on" custodial assistance provided in the home. Home health aides may be licensed but do not provide medical care. Home health aides typically help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and transferring. Many home healthcare agencies are certified by Medicare. Some long-term care (LTC) insurance policies cover the cost of a home health aide.
