Personal care aides provide critical support for everyday tasks such as dressing, bathing, housekeeping, errands, and meal planning. Explore key issues related to providing safe, attentive personal care services in a home-based setting or group facility. Among the covered topics are: basic anatomy and physiology; disease processes and prevention; nutrition; infection control; emergency interventions; medical terminology; employment strategies; and caregiver wellness. During a hands-on clinical skills lab, practice skills essential to the care of elderly and disabled clients including vital signs monitoring, meal planning, dry dressings application, assistance with the administration of oxygen and medications, and participation in care-team planning. Because personal care aides often work with vulnerable populations, professional ethics are emphasized throughout training. Learn how to keep accurate records, spot and report concerns, and provide value-added services.
