Big Apple Training is known for being the go-to resource for Home Health Aide training, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training, and more.
And now—with the intention of making their invaluable services available to an even wider community of people—the Bronx location is offering their Home Health Aide program in Spanish.
Home Health Aides (HHAs) can be a crucial resource for families who don't have the time or resources to provide full-time care for their ailing loved ones. HHAs may also work with the physically disabled, hospice patients, and those affected by a variety of other conditions—whether those patients are living at home or in residential communities. And aides can specialize in different areas, which means everything from administering medications to assisting with exercise and aiding with personal hygiene and errands.
With these things in mind, Big Apple Training's HHA certification program includes courses in physical and occupational therapy, geriatric education, nutrition, phlebotomy, and more. Aides will learn how to record and monitor vital signs such as pulse and respiration. They will be given a comprehensive overview of the physical and psychological aspects of patient care, thus contributing to a situation where compassion and understanding is equal to professional expertise.
In fact, the need for Home Health Aides has increased in recent years—and it's continuing to increase. The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the need for HHAs is expected to grow by up to 50% between 2008 and 2018, which is, according to the same estimate, “much faster than the average for all occupations.”
In short, if you want a career that's both emotionally rewarding and financially secure, now is the time to pursue the training you need. And with programs being offered in Spanish, it's even easier to expand your horizons, and the horizons of the patients you'll care for.
