What Does a CNA/HHA Do?
A CNA/HHA assists with activities of daily living (ADLs) for patients and provides basic nursing care, including helping with transfers, bathing, and maintaining personal hygiene. Home care CNAs/HHAs are supervised by a registered nurse.
Here are some ways a CNA/HHA helps a patient:
- Assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, grooming, etc.)
- Help with feeding
- Support with range of motion and medically prescribed home exercise
- Stand-by assistance with walking and transfers
- Help with toileting and incontinence
- Communicating with medical team
Advantages of Becoming Your Loved One’s CNA/HHA
As a parent or family member, nobody understands the daily needs of your loved one better than you do. The “Parent-as-CNA/HHA” program is unique to South Carolina Medicaid and allows family members (not just parents) to earn certification to become a caregiver for their loved one, based on medical necessity. It allows an opportunity to earn a viable income as an employee of a home healthcare agency.
- By becoming your family member’s certified caregiver, you don’t have to worry about lapses in care.
- With a trusted parent or family member as a CNA/HHA, some financial burden is relieved for the family.
