Driven by a growing senior citizen population in the United States, home health care services have soared in demand over the last several years. This trend is only expected to increase, as employment of home health and personal care aides is projected to grow 25% by 2031, far outpacing the average for other occupations.
What exactly is home health care?
Home health care consists of professional senior care services provided by specialists in the comfort of the patient’s home. These care services are conducted by a home health aide (HHA) who is specifically trained to assist patients with activities of daily living (ADL).
It is important to distinguish HHAs from traditional nursing roles like certified nursing assistants (CNAs). Whereas CNAs generally perform clinical duties — from observing medical patterns to setting up medical equipment and more — HHAs are primarily trained to assist with ADL and offer general companionship.
CareOne at Home is CareOne’s private-duty, compassionate home health care service, with a mission to empower patients and their families to make the best decisions for their loved one’s care. A proud Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP), CareOne at Home maintains the highest standards of care by prioritizing patient dignity, comfort, and well-being.
Here’s what you need to know about home health care and what you can expect from CareOne at Home.
Home health care is adaptable to your needs.
Home health care covers a depth of care services. It’s also important to recognize that not every patient’s care plan is going to look the same, and caregiving priorities can change in an instant. At CareOne at Home, our scope of home health services is wide-reaching, and our specialists are equipped to help with a variety of care needs. We offer a wide breadth of services, including but not limited to:
- Assistance with ADL
- Medication reminders
- Grocery shopping, pharmacy pick-ups, and other errands

- Meal preparation and light housekeeping
- Daily hygiene upkeep
- Overnight supervision
- General companionship
CareOne at Home creates care plans that are highly personalized and adaptable to each patient’s unique care needs to ensure they are providing the most comprehensive and compassionate home health care possible.
Home health care isn’t always or exclusively care at home.
Contrary to popular belief, some home health care journeys start outside the home – for example, a patient may need help with their discharge planning from a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Because of this, CareOne at Home’s services extend beyond in-home care. Our compassionate home health care services help patients with their transition to/from facilities to ensure a continuity of care. No matter where you are in your transition, CareOne at Home is here to guide you and your loved one every step of the way.
Home health care eases the caregiver burden and improves the caregiver-patient relationship.
Home health care enables patients to age with dignity, providing the care they need within the comfort of their own home — and it benefits caregivers, too. Home health care relieves the burden of responsibility for caregivers by freeing up their time to live their own lives while providing peace of mind that their loved one is in trusted hands to receive the best possible care.
At CareOne at Home, we view ourselves as an extension of your family, providing compassionate home health care to your loved one with the utmost warmth, attention, and support.
