Our HHA training course in San Diego will teach you the skills and understanding necessary to provide an excellent level of care in the home care setting. Home Health Aides make a remarkable difference in the lives of the sick, disabled, and elderly. HHA’s allow those clients the opportunity to live on their own who would otherwise need a higher level of care.
HHA’s work closely with a nurse to keep them up to date about the patient’s health. A home health aide assist with personal tasks such as bathing, dressing, and keeping the home safe and clean for the patient. You will be in charge of many basic tasks such as changing bed linens, washing and ironing the patient’s laundry and cleaning the patient’s quarters.
HHA’s also make several checks on the patient’s pulse, temperature, and respirations to report back to the head nurse in charge of the patient. You will also provide patients with help moving in and out of wheelchairs, automobiles, beds, baths, and assist them with dressing and grooming. This is what a home health aide does for their patients on a daily basis.
Having a home health aide certification opens up new opportunities in your healthcare career. With an HHA certification you will be able to work at staffing agencies, registries and hospice that allow you to work at a patient’s home. HHAs are required to take a state-approved program to get certified and licensed in the state of California. Most HHA’s make between $12 – $16 per hour (See the Bureau of Labor Statistics Here) depending on your experience.
We also know of students who have gone on to start their own business with their home health aide certification and charge per patient. This is a great way if you have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to start your own company. If you need continued education units to renew for CNA license then this is the perfect class for you.
