What services will our NEHHC Assistant provide?

The short answer is: whatever it takes to keep you or your loved one healthy and comfortable. Typical services our caregivers provide for disabled clients include:

 

  • Assistance in bathing and dressing
  • Toilet assistance
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication dispensing and monitoring
  • Laundry and housekeeping
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Companionship and emotional support
  • Informal education and support of family members

 

Before services begin, you and your family will meet with a supervising RN who will be responsible for your ongoing quality of care. Together you will determine a specific care plan. An RN will also have contact with the client or their family at least twice a month to monitor the care program, provide advice and assistance, problem-solve when necessary, and generally work to insure the ongoing quality of care. Also, an RN is available for staff, client, and/or family 24/7.
