The home health aide is an important member of the health care team directly involved with patient care of physically or mentally challenged individuals who need help with personal care, activities of daily living, and simple household chores. The Home Health Aide program prepares students to seek employment in residential care facilities, hospice settings, and clients’ homes. During the program, students will develop strong communication techniques and learn the basic nursing skills necessary to become certified as a nurse assistant in the State of Utah. Students will demonstrate proficiency in providing basic personal cares including bathing, showering, grooming, and other personal hygiene tasks, as well as develop skills for basic household tasks such as cooking and meal preparation, light cleaning, and, doing laundry. Students will develop an understanding of basic household safety and complete a ServSafe course on food safety. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be recommended to take the UNAR State Certification exam to become a certified nurse assistant in the State of Utah and will receive a food handlers’ permit from the Utah Department of Health.
