Personal Care Aide and Home Health Aide Career TrainingPosted on 7/9/2012
Workforce Development and Community Education is offering Personal Care Aide on July 20-27 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Business Development Center, 24 Denison Parkway West, Corning. The course provides 40 hours of instruction and prepares students for personal care aide employment opportunities. Registrations are requested by July 11. Personal care aides help elderly, physically or mentally disabled, or ill, to live in their homes or in residential care facilities and assist with housekeeping, planning meals and routine personal care services. They may help clients who have been discharged from acute care settings who have short-term rehabilitative needs. An additional course will be offered providing instruction for those choosing to transition from personal care aide to Home Health Aide. This course includes a minimum of 35 hours including 16 hours of supervised practical training in a laboratory, patient home, or other healthcare setting under the direct supervision of a registered nurse. The course will be held August 4-13 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. for a total of 35 hours of instruction. Registrations are requested by July 25. Home health aides differ from personal care aides by providing health-related services under the supervision of a medical professional.
