Home health aides are very similar to nursing aides. Home health aides and nursing aides attend to patients and provide assistance with daily personal tasks such as bathing, feeding and dressing. The main difference is that home health aides cannot provide medical care to patients, while nursing aides can.
Home health aides undergo training to learn the various skills needed for the job. Certification for home health aides is not a requirement, but many employers prefer hiring licensed and certified home health aides. To obtain certification, the home health aide must complete 75 hours of training and pass a certification exam, as of 2015.
