Live-In Home Health Aides
Live-in Home Health Aides (HHA's) are paraprofessionals who have received specialized training for certification as a HHA, and who meet State of Minnesota standards. Our live-in HHA's work under the supervision of our RN case manager or therapist and provide a broad range of assistance while living in a household.
Live-in HHA's work an average of 8-12 hours each day, then remain in the home "on call" for the remaining hours of the day. They are given the opportunity to receive eight hours uninterrupted sleep each night, though they will assist a recipient to the bathroom in the middle of the night if the need arises.

- Companion care and home safety supervision
