A healthcare assistant, also known as an HCA, plays a vital role in caring for people. An HCA provides personal care such as bathing, feeding and dressing and also performs support functions such as taking vital signs, making beds, transporting clients, assisting clients with activities of daily living. The healthcare assistant supports and directs personal care to patients and residents in a variety of institutional settings, such as hospitals, clinics and nursing homes. It is a role which requires a lot of knowledge, energy, and compassion.
The Diploma in Health Care Assistant program has been designed to train Health Care Assistants who can provide nursing aids and assist in offering patients and their families, safe holistic care which recognizes individual emotional, cultural, and socio-economic needs.
