The home health aides caring process includes basic personal care, such as bathing, feeding, toileting, and elementary medical care, consisting of administering drugs, treatments and special procedures. In the case of patients that still maintain their social and working life, home health aides help them go to work or to social events and assist them in their activity.

Minor housekeeping is also required in the daily work of a home health aide. They may have to do laundry, change sheets, prepare special meals and shop for food. As health care professionals, they have to advise the family of the ill member, about nutrition, the cleaning of the house and psychological support. They also have to collaborate with the medical personnel that assist the cared person in his or her illness. Reactions to medication, improvements or worsening of illness, irregularities – they all have to be noted by the home health aide and communicated to the doctor in order to have a realistic image about the patient's illness and progress. In no circumstances a home health aide should not collaborate with the medical professional that manages him and that is usually a certified nurse.
