Helping patients with activities of daily living (ADLs)
Ensuring that the Care Recipient receives appropriate nutrition can include shopping for groceries, preparing meals, and, depending on the circumstances, assisting with eating.
Lifting and moving patients
Use of a Walker and or Wheelchair
Taking vital signs
Taking a Care Recipient blood pressure, pulse, and temperature, and then record their findings and report them to a supervisor to determine whether action is necessary.
Maintaining a clean and sanitized environment
This helps to reduce the spread of germs and infection in the Care Recipients living area.
Communicating with healthcare team and family members
HAHSC will serve as a channel between Care Recipient, their nurses and physicians so all issues are communicated. HAHSC interactions and conversations may also include family members involved in Care Recipients care.
Providing companionship and friendship
Since HAHSC spends a good deal of time with our Care Recipients, we often provide compassion and comfort to those who are lonely, frustrated, or scared.
