California, August, 2010 On July 1st, job seekers will have access to cost-effective training allowing entry into the exciting world of home care. The California Association of Health Care Services at Home (CAHSAH) now offers on-line training available 24/7 to home care workers.
The Department of Labor, Bureau of Job Statistics rates this profession among the fastest growing in the U.S. California requires 75 hours of training, which is now available for as little as $80 for each enrollee.
“Workforce development in the home care industry is critical to keeping people in their homes rather than in sterile, expensive settings,” says Joe Hafkenschiel, CAHSAH President. “Our training offers people an affordable career opportunity in a critical sector of the home care industry.”
Using the California Uniform Standards for Home Care Aide Paraprofessionals (CUSHCAP) model approved by the CAHSAH Board, CAHSAH is offering two different levels of online training for the non-medical home care workers. These non-medical home care services are defined as assistance with the activities of daily living which require no medical intervention and are non-invasive. These activities include but are not limited to, companionship, baby-sitting or environmental type services which provide care, understanding, protections, supervision and assistance with feeding, dressing or bathing for a child or adult who by reason of advanced age, physical disability or mental deficiency, needs supervision.
