Become a Certified Home Health Aide!

Our Certified Home Health Aide training program will prepare you to change lives.

Are you searching for a career where you will make a difference and have a positive impact on the lives you touch every single day? A career that is more than a job?

Home health aides are the heart and soul of home health care. The care you provide, observations that you make, and reports that you give are what allows home care clients to safely stay in their home in familiar surrounding with their family.

As a vital member of the healthcare team, you will be the eyes and ears of the nursing and therapy staff. Your observations and reports to your supervisor are critical for your client’s health, safety, and well-being. Without your eyes and ears, clients cannot stay healthy and safe in the comfort of their own homes.

Home care clients need you. As a home health aide, you will help your client maintain independence and dignity by assisting them with bathing, grooming, eating, mobility, and toileting. You will help your client live a better life by helping with cooking, light housekeeping, safety in the home, and socialization.
