Home Health Aide

Program Description

Home Health Aides provide safe and compassionate care at home or in an assisted living facility for people who suffer from illness or injury and might otherwise be placed in the hospital or nursing home. Students in the Home Health Aide program will be trained to perform tasks which include personal care, nutritional support, and home maintenance. Upon completion of the program, Home Health Aides work under the supervision, in a facility or client’s home, of a supervisor/coordinator or RN/Case Manager.

CAREER OUTLOOK
Employment of home health aides is projected to grow 38 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the baby-boom population ages and the elderly population grows, demand for the services of home health aides to provide assistance will continue to increase. ¹
