H2U spotlighted SeniorBridge's success helping families with elder care in the November newsletter
One of the greatest long term care decisions you can make when caring for an older adult is the decision to hire a private caregiver on your own. The workers who usually provide chronic custodial care are often referred to as home health aides, certified nursing assistants and custodial care workers. Home health aides provide a wide range of assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, grooming, assisting with ambulate or transferring, toileting, feeding and providing medication reminders.
