This is a 40-hour course designed to improve the skills of CNAs in providing health- and personal care services to patients in their respective homes. The program requires 20 hours of theory or classroom instruction and 20 hours of supervised clinical training in private homes, board and care facilities, or long-term care facilities.
After completion of the course, students will be able to understand the role of a certified Home Health Aide and function in Home Health agencies. They will know how to provide services to patients in the home, understand the medical and social needs of people being served, and enhance their skills in personal care, nutrition, cleaning, and care tasks in the home setting.
A Certified Home Health Aide Certificate is issued by the Department of Health Services to those who have completed the course, qualifying them to work in different Medicare-certified Home Health Agencies. CNA’s taking the course earn 26 continuing education units.
