The need for Health Care Assistants, Resident Care Attendants, Home Support Workers, Long-term Care Aides and Live-In Care givers continues to grow at an increasing rate. Health Care Assistrants provide and maintain a safe and clean environment in health care facilities and in patient's homes. They provide basic patient care including supplying and emptying bed pans. They provide clients with assistance in activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and grooming. Sometimes they serve meal trays, and feed patients. To help patients recover, they lift, turn or massage patients, and they may also supervise patients' exercise routines.
They take basic measurements, such as patients' blood pressure temperature and pulse. They collect specimens, such as urine, feces or sputum, administer suppositories, colonic irrigations and enemas, and perform other procedures. They transport patients in wheelchairs or stretchers for treatment or surgery, carry messages, reports, requisitions and specimens from one department to another, and maintain an inventory of supplies.
The additional Early Childhood courses will provide the students with the skills to provide a caring and educational environment where children are able to thrive. They will contribute to the well being of the family as well.
This program gives the student the necessary skills to belong to this "in-high-demand" occupation. Live-ins usually work longer hours. However, if they work evenings or weekends, they may get time off. Although living in may isolate them from family and friends, these workers often become part of their employer’s family and may derive satisfaction from caring for them.
