Why Home Care?
As an Uncertified Home Care Attendant (UHCA), you will work with individuals in the comfort of their own homes. You help people live independently by assisting with activities of daily living such as personal care (bathing/toileting), mobility and transfer assistance, meal planning and preparation, medication assistance, housekeeping and laundry, and in-home respite services.
Home care is rewarding and important work that allows someone to stay in the environment in which they are most comfortable. Our program teaches you the skills you need to provide person-centered care and improve the daily life for your clients.

Our skilled instructors will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to succeed as an Uncertified Home Care Attendant. As a student, you will participate in full-time, hands-on and classroom learning, followed by a practicum in the community.
