Get certified as a Home Health Aide (HHA)

People who suffer from certain health issues might need assistance with their daily activities. This assistance is provided by a caregiver who is specialized as a Home Health Aide, also known as HHA.

These types of patients usually need help with basic daily tasks, like bathing or dressing or even eating. HHA offers help for patients to do this, while at the same time they provide companionship
and emotional support to the patient.

Becoming a Home Health Aide

To earn your HHA certification, you will need to pass training and once you are ready, you need to prove competency or pass a certification exam. The requirements for HHA certification vary from
state to state. However, most programs include training in the following
areas:

  • ● In-direct Personal care
  • ● Emergency Medical Situation Prep
  • ● Activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • ● Instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs)
  • ● Communication and emotional support with disabled clients
  • ● Infection control
  • ● Safety courses (CPR & BFA)

Becoming a Home Health Aide

The length of HHA training programs varies from state to state.Some programs are as short as 40 hours, while others can take several weeks or months to complete. The cost of HHA training programs
also varies if you want to get your HHA training Online.

Once you have completed a training program and passed a certification exam, you will be a certified HHA. You will be able to work in a variety of settings, including home health agencies, hospitals, and nursing homes.

But, what are the benefits of a HHA certification?

Any certification will be useful to demonstrate the skills and knowledge that you have and will surely put you several steps ahead of those caregivers who are not certified. This, without a doubt, will make you a more attractive candidate for hospitals and other medical facilities. This of course will translate into higher salaries.

Certification will bring greater job satisfaction. HHA’s
usually feel more confident when working because of their preparation and their higher abilities to take care of their patients, therefore they love what they do and feel more satisfied.

If you are interested in a career in healthcare, HHA
certification is a great place to start. It is a relatively short and affordable program that can lead to high-paying and fulfilling jobs.
