Health care, particularly the in-home one, is a burgeoning industry.
Health care franchises, registries and home health agencies are sprouting up like mushrooms after a downpour. Credit that to the flooding demands for their services. It seems that the number of people who get old, sick or injured is constantly on the rise. Add to that the lack of skills of the family members to care for their own patients.
The rise in the number of health care providers also gives rise to the increasing demands for health care professionals such as nurses, physical therapists, social workers and home health aides.
It goes without saying that, indeed, there’s a rewarding career waiting for anyone who’s interested in the care profession.
Attentive Care, Inc, Offers a Course in CHHA
While our agency Attentive Care, Inc., the trusted Health Care in Williamstown NJ, is busy providing quality home health care to our patients, we are also training students to become certified home health aides (CHHAs).
CHHAs assist those who cannot complete their activities of daily living on their own anymore. Personal care such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and light housekeeping services are provided to the clients so they are allowed to stay in the comfort of their home.
What are the requirements to become a Home Health Aide?
Applicants should undergo the CHHA course consisting of 60 hours of class lecture and 16 hours of training in our off-site skill lab.
They must be 18 years of age, U.S. citizens or qualified legal alien, and have the ability to read, write and speak English proficiently. They must be physically capable of participating in class work such as lifting, getting patients out of bed, giving bed baths, aiding transfers for those with limited mobility, and other patient related care.
Please take note that the NJ Board of Nursing requires applicants to be current on child support obligations, not be in default of student loans, not been convicted on any “Disqualify Crimes.” They will have to pass a criminal background check and be fingerprinted. They will be asked to demonstrate that they can read and write English. They must bring their government issued ID and their social security card to register for the course. If they are not US citizens they must bring in proof of eligibility to work in the USA. A birth certificate is also required for the Board of Nursing application.
Once training is complete, students will have the knowledge and skills required by the NJ State Board of Nursing to become a certified home health aide.
That’s right. Our course is approved by no less than the New Jersey State Board of Nursing.
Those of you who are interested in becoming a caregiver, you’ve just come to the right place. The Health Care in Williamstown NJ offers state approved classes for home health aide certification.
