Home Care Aides assist elderly, disabled, and ill patients to live in their own homes rather than in a health care facility. HCAs contribute to the efficiency and quality of the health care system. The primary role of the HCA is to perform assistive duties, such as personal hygiene, grooming, transfers (bed to chair), range-of-motion exercises (moving the joints), and proper positioning of the patient.
