HHA Training Classes in Michigan

An increasing number of seniors are making the decision to age in place.  Essentially, more and more elderly individuals are deciding to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, instead of living in a nursing home or an assisted living facility.  As such, there is a growing demand for Home Health Aides (HHAs).

The role of an HHA involves providing routine individualized healthcare services.  This includes taking on tasks like dressing wounds, changing bandages and putting on topical medications on convalescents, seniors or disable individuals.  This is typically done at the home of the patient or in a care facility.

Other duties include monitoring or reporting changes in the health status of a patient.  In addition, these aides undertake personal care duties like grooming, bathing and dressing the patient.  There are HHAs who run errands, provide companionship and ensure seniors are taking their medication on time and in the right dosage.

To fulfill the requirements for working in this field, you need to take HHA training classes.   The Charter Health Care Training Center is a remarkable institution where you can do your HHA training classes in Michigan.  The program at the Charter Health Care Training Center offers a foundation on which students can build a profession in the field of healthcare.  Additionally, the program is offered to individuals who have previously completed nurse aide training that covered a minimum of 75 hours.

The content of the program includes:

• CPR/First Aid Training
• Introduction to Home Care
• Food Preparation and Storage
• Meal Planning
• Medications in Home Care
• Managing a Household
• Maintaining the Home Environment

Becoming a Home Health Aide is ideal for individuals who would like to work in the field of healthcare.  This is especially true for those who have a passion for working with seniors.

    I love hearing stuff such as these. We do need caring people to help with an ageing population. I, someday, will be in a similar position and knowing that these types of assistance are available somehow helps me in transitioning better to the life of a senior.

    Content of the training looks quite thorough and useful. I am very sure that this training is very useful for someone looking to build their career as a Home Health Aide

    I think Home Health Aids are a necessity, especially when the cared for isn’t mobile or doesn’t leave the residence often. The right HHA can easily improve the quality of life for most of the cared for, and that translates into a longer and happier living citizen. Those requirements don’t seem tough at all, and pursuing a career as a Home Health Aid seems like a very rewarding profession.

    It’s important to have someone who is trained to
    take care of your senior loved ones. These
    classes provide excellent opportunities to
    improve your skills if you are a caregiver for
    an older person.

    Health Care Aids are so important in today’s Medical fields. Medical specialties are needed everywhere. So many people need assistance and special training is needed at all times.

  10. Jhei says:

    It is not surprising for many people to prefer home health care. The shift is likely caused by several horror stories in medical facilities that had been circulating in the past few years. These training classes is an awesome idea. Way to go Michigan! Hopefully, this becomes a trend.

  11. Jenious says:

    HHA sounds like a great opportunity. The work doesn’t sounds fun by no means, but it does sound like a rewarding career.

    Sounds like your company has a good training program for home health aides. I have been considering this field for months and after reading your article, I think it’s about time for me to Make That Leap!

      Nesting HTML inside of a button tag (the &ln;;pat&gts’s in the prototypes shown above) will cause the HTML to be submitted in Internet Explorer (instead of the form value). It’s a pretty well known issue. That’s my guess as to why they went with <div>’s instead of <button> tags. I know YUI puts their wrapper HTML outside of the <button> tag to get around this issue.
