Home Care Aide (HCA) Classes
Visiting Angels offers HCA Classes at our Tacoma and Olympia offices.
Students will learn the basics of caregiving that will enable them to take the state licensing exam. Topics include: Becoming a Home Care Aide, Client Focused Communication, Medication Assistance, Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s), HIV/Aids plus other special considerations caregivers should know to work in a long term care setting like in-home care, adult family homes, assisted living and other retirement settings.
Class requires 5 in-person trainings + 50 hours of on-line study. We are able to provide you with access to a computer for on-line training if you do not have a computer at home to do so. We find that our training is immensely successful because of the opportunity to practice skills with an instructor in the same location that you can take the test at, in addition to the experience and expertise of our instructors who are able to coach hands-on learners. Our classroom is a Washington State Regional Test Site Location used by Prometric to administer state HCA tests.
