About Course

For the most part, certified Home Health Aides provide important services to the elderly, people with chronic illnesses, and individuals with disabilities. A typical workday for a Home Health Aide could involve simple companionship with their clients, ambulatory assistance, such as transferring a patient from sitting to standing or moving the patient from a wheelchair to a bathing chair, providing outdoor transportation, performing general housekeeping duties, administering personal care, meal preparation, and important medication reminders.

But before you can begin a career as a Home Health Aide, you must first obtain certain skills to perform on the job. Additionally, individuals with great interpersonal skills, like the ability to listen, communicate, and connect with patients, time management skills, and physical stamina are also quite beneficial.

The Home Health Aide (HHA) program at E.D.P. School in Brooklyn, New York will provide the necessary training required to play a crucial role in participating in the ongoing long-term care plan for your client. As the primary individual administering hands-on care to patients in need, a Home Health Aide will immediately become an important asset in your clients’ whole network of medical practitioners and family members.

This course has been approved by the New York State Education Department and accredited by the Middle States Association of America.

Job Outlook

Overall employment of home health and personal care aides is projected to grow 34 percent from 2019 to 2029.

Overall employment of home health and personal care aides is projected to grow 34 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the baby-boom generation ages and the elderly population grows, the demand for the services of home health and personal care aides will continue to increase.

Elderly clients and people with disabilities are increasingly relying on home care as an alternative to nursing homes or hospitals. Families may prefer to keep aging family members in their homes rather than in nursing homes or hospitals.

Clients who need help with everyday tasks and household chores, rather than medical care, may be able to reduce their medical expenses by staying in or returning to their homes. About 568,800 openings for home health and personal care aides are projected each year, on average, over the decade.

Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
