Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care offers the assistance of HHA’s to insure patient needs are being met and to allow caregivers more quality time with their loved ones.
The HHA assists the patient and family with bathing, skin care, dressing, light housekeeping, cooking, eating or errands. These invaluable team members develop close personal relationships with the patient and become indispensible to family.
HHA’s provide their care where ever the patient considers home including nursing homes, hospitals, the patient’s home or the home of the person caring for the patient.
All CHPC Home Health Aids receive extensive training and are certified by the New York State Health Department.
Each day is different for patients, and HHA’s will provide their services 1-5 times a week depending on the need.
If you request a HHA, you and your family will be asked to help the hospice team design a plan of care, including what your aide will be assigned to do. We will do our best to honor your requests
