Catholic Charities Home Care
Catholic Charities Eastern Washington provides non-medical assistance to low-income clients who are elderly and/or living with disabilities live with dignity in their own homes longer.
Home Care Assistants
Home Care Assistants (HCAs) provide non-medical aid to seniors and people with disabilities, including children with disabilities. The assistance HCAs provide to our clients allows them to remain independent and in their own homes. Without this aid, our clients may not be able to stay in their homes and may have to go to a nursing home, hospital or another facility.
A team of social workers, nurses, case managers, and others are also involved in the lives of our clients. These individuals make up the client's care team. They may coordinate services, plan the care, and they may provide medical care. However, the Homecare Assistant is the individual who spends the most time with a client and is a vital member of this team. All Home Care Assistants are certified through the Department of Health.
MAKING AN IMPACT
served in WA
Our clients may have a chronic illness, a physical or developmental disability, or are too frail to perform tasks on their own. We are licensed by the Department of Health to provide specific tasks to clients. DSHS pays for the services of many clients. Many clients also pay for services themselves.
Some individuals' needs are minimal, such as meal prep, medication management, or assistance walking. While other individuals need greater care, such as help with bathing, toileting, or other personal care tasks. Some may even need high-level care such as insulin injections or other tasks delegated by a nurse. HCAs need special training to do tasks that are delegated by a nurse.
