What is a home health aide or HHA?  Essentially it is someone who is skilled in providing home care to those who need it. The needs of our elderly are growing constantly as the number increases due to the aging baby boomer generation and also people living longer. Many of this older generation prefer to stay in their homes and live independently as long as possible. This is now made possible through the home care given to them by people who have received appropriate training. These HHAs work in the home to provide comfort to all those needing it, especially those who are elderly, ill or recovering from an illness or accident. HHAs provide a valuable service that is increasingly needed.

Home health aide training can start you in a career in health care or nursing, and give you a sense of achievement in your job. This page tells you what to expect when you take home health aide classes, what the prospects are after completion and where you can find HHA training online or on campus. If you are interested in helping with health, you might also want to check out the nurse aide and dental hygiene pages.
