Home Health Aides (HHAs) provide a range of services, such as personal care, meal preparation, light housekeeping, assistance with ambulation, and recording vital signs. HHAs work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. Students in this class will learn the skills needed to work in the home setting with the elderly, infants and individuals with disabilities.  This HHA course is approved by the New York State Education Department. It provides a minimum of 88 hours of classroom instruction and lab experience followed by 8 hours of clinical/supervised practical training at an assisted living facility.  Students who successfully complete the course receive HHA certification and will be listed in the NY State Home Care Registry.
