Individuals who provide routine care and support services which help people who are elderly, have disabilities or are recovering from an illness live in their own homes rather than a health care facility. Under the direction of nursing or medical staff, they provide health-related services such as administering oral medications. They may check patients' pulse rates, temperatures and respiration rates; help with simple prescribed exercises; keep patients' rooms neat; and help patients move from bed, bathe, dress and groom. Occasionally, they change non-sterile dressings, give massages and alcohol rubs, or assist with braces and artificial limbs. Experienced home health aides also may assist with medical equipment such as ventilators, which help patients breathe.
