Bringing in a home health aide or home attendant is one of the most touchy subjects for seniors. All seniors seek to maintain their dignity and privacy, which makes them resistant to the idea of a home attendant. However, he or she may need one to maintain good hygiene. After all, the consequences of poor personal care can become serious, leading to rashes, bedsores, and even infections. Each of our home care aides is equipped to care for and prevent such incidents. With the right HHA for your loved one, you can trust them to institute a daily routine of good hygiene.
In addition, new devices and technology make it easier than ever for an in-home health aide to keep an elderly client groomed and healthy. For instance, specially designed razors help ensure that a home care aide can shave clients without accidental cuts. Likewise, there are adult diapers that give early warnings of an impending urinary tract infection. It is now easier than ever for a home care aide to care for the needs of your loved one.
A good HHA will use all available resources and technology to institute a daily routine of good hygiene. This, in turn, can greatly improve your loved one’s quality of life. Once an elder has been properly cared for, including having been showered and groomed, his or her self-esteem rises. She’s more likely to be active and to venture outside, which is essential for good psychological and physical well being.

Englewood, NJ is a charming, inclusive town just ten miles from Times Square, and consistently brings new cultural, shopping, entertainment and housing opportunities to residents. About 10% of Englewood households have someone living alone who is 65 years or older. If you recently visited your elderly loved one and found him or her in need of a shower or shave, it may be time to consider a home health aide (HHA). We’re here to help!
Here in New Jersey, we pride ourselves on our proximity to the city, all while experiencing the tranquility of Suburban life. However, while sometimes New Jersey has its difficulties, a longer commute among them, our Home Health Aides are screened to ensure an extension of easy living. Each Home Health Aide is required to have a Driver’s License, and is asked upon accepting a job in New Jersey from New York if they accept the tolls and commute of New Jersey traffic. Like our New York offices, we have also been approved by the New Jersey department of Health in order to provide healthcare services to families located within the area. Additionally, each Expert (as we call them) is screened thoroughly through a background check and intensive interview process, so while we can’t change the New Jersey transit, we can make Home Health easier and more tranquil to match your lifestyle.
