Training is proud to announce that we now offer our HHA Training in Spanish. Please visit our Ayudante de Salud page for more info. Home Health Aides (HHA) bring comfort and dignity to thousands of New Yorkers every day. Home Health Aides help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of in health care facilities. Under the direction of a nursing or medical staff, they provide health-related services. Like nursing aides, HHAs check patients’ pulse rate, temperature and respiration rate; help with simple prescribed exercises; and help patients to get in and out of bed, bathe, dress and groom. Occasionally, they change non-sterile dressings, give massages and provide skin care, or assist with braces and artificial limbs. Experienced Home Health Aides, with training, may also assist with medical equipment such as ventilators. Most HHAs work with elderly or disabled persons who need more extensive care that family or friends can provide. And some help discharged hospital patients who have relatively short-term needs. HHAs who have taken their home health aide classes in NY at ABC have found steady employment in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, New Jersey, Westchester and beyond.
