Program Description
Home care assistance students are trained to provide basic care and services to persons of all ages who are sick or who have physical or mental disabilities on the basis of a care plan. This involves offering the basic care that they are trained to provide, helping clients carry out their everyday activities, helping them organize their living environment, ensuring clients’ safety and intervening in crisis or emergency situations. Students also learn to help clients integrate and socialize in individual or community activities. All of these tasks require establishing a relationship of trust with clients and those close to them. Home care attendants also receive training in providing care and services in the home.
