Become a Home Health Aide quickly!

Southern Technical Institute provides the necessary training and skill set to prepare students for employment as a home health aide. The Home Health Aide training course will provide you with the knowledge of how to maintain bodily and emotional comfort, and to assist the client toward independent living in a safe environment. Home Health Aides (HHAs) go to a resident’s home, or work in a residential facility, to deliver health care to the elderly, ill, or disabled. A home health aide typically works with residents who need more extensive physical and/or medical care than a typical family can provide. HHAs help their clients with everyday activities like getting out of bed, bathing, dressing, exercising and grooming.
