Patient Care Aide Certificate Program

Personal care aides provide critical support for everyday tasks such as dressing, bathing, housekeeping, errands, and meal planning. Students will 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; dementia; employment strategies; and caregiver wellness. During a hands-on clinical skills lab, students will practice skills essential to the care of elderly and disabled clients including bathing, dressing, mobility, transferring, toileting, grooming, and meal planning. Because personal care aides often work with vulnerable populations, professional ethics are emphasized throughout training. Students will learn OSHA and CDC standards, documentation, abuse, and professional responsibility.
