Program description

Health Care Aide

The demand for qualified caregivers continues to grow across Canada. If you love to help people, then the Health Care Aid Diploma education programme at CDI College can prepare you for a rewarding career as a caregiver.

CDI's 29-week Health Care Aide Diploma education programme develops students' skills and knowledge to care for people living at home and in long-term care facilities. Students learn to identify and respond to their physical and emotional needs as well as promote physical and mental activity. Students also learn about anatomy, medical terminology, chronic conditions and palliative care

Students enrolled in this Health Care Aide Diploma receive practical, hands-on training on the key features of responsible and accountable care, including wheelchair safety, transfer skills, mechanical lifting and various care techniques. An integral part of the Health Care Aide education programme is the mandatory 6-week clinical placement that allows students to gain valuable, hands-on experience in health care.

As a graduate of the Health Care Aid Diploma, students are qualified to assist clients who require basic nursing care as well as patients living with mental health issues. Successful completion of the program qualifies graduates to work in long term care facilities, home health care agencies, retirement homes, residential care centres, hospices and group homes.
