February 11, 2016

Expanding duties home health aides are allowed to perform can increase family support by supplementing tasks family members may already be doing.

“It’s precisely the kinds of things that home health aides and nurses do, that can prevent people from being readmitted to the hospital,” Joel Cantor, director of the Center for State Health Policy at Rutgers University, told NewsWorks.
