What is an HHA?

The Home Health Aide (HHA) program is a 40 hour program for existing CNAs to pursue their careers in the growing industry of Home Health Care. HHAs help seniors with their basic care needs in the comfort of their homes. This course includes a combination of theory classes and clinical experience. The entire course is conducted by professional & experienced faculty with years of teaching experience in allied health science.

Home Health Aides are allowed to perform basic health-related tasks (e.g. checking a patient’s pulse rate), but the majority of their shift is usually spent assisting clients with minor housekeeping and personal care at their place of residence. There may also be situations where the caregiver is required to provide low-level healthcare services, such as taking a patient’s temperature, checking his or her pulse rate, or monitoring vital signs.
