A certified and insured home health aide offers care, compassion, and support to facilitate recovery and live as independently as possible

What is a Home Health Aide?

Our certified and insured home health aides offer care, compassion, and support to help you, or a family member, recover from a procedure, or live well and as independently as possible. We offer just the level of care you need while respecting your privacy and dignity.

A Home Health Aide with Mass General Brigham Home Care provides compassionate assistance with activities of daily living in your home with dignity and respect. A home health aide may be just one part of your home care team.

A change in your health care situation is not always an easy thing to deal with. A certified home health aide can help as part of your home care team in many ways during a time of care or recovery transition, always showing you kindness, understanding and respect while maintaining your need for privacy and dignity.

Services provided by home health aides include:

  • Bathing and grooming
  • Meal preparation and eating assistance
  • Exercise (as part of your home health plan of care prescribed by your physician)
  • Mobility and help with moving from one place to next
  • Medication reminders
