Ingleside at Home is now offering a Personal Care Aide Certification Program. Personal Care Aides provide services to older adults who need assistance. Once certification is received, Personal Care Aides will have the ability to seek employment with home care companies, including Ingleside at Home.

The Personal Care Aide Certification Program provides:

  • foundational training and skills needed to provide care
  • an understanding of HIPAA
  • how to detect and prevent elder abuse
  • an understanding of dementia and the need for trained caregivers
  • the importance of observation and reporting skills to keep clients out of the hospital

The program consists of 40.5 hours of online courses that covers all the training required to become a certified Personal Care Aide in the state of Virginia. Once the online course work is completed, a practice assessment showcasing specific hands on skills, including vital signs, simulation of bathing, and dressing. The hands-on part of the program will be conducted at Westminster at Lake Ridge in Lake Ridge, VA. When both parts of the course are successfully completed, a certificate will be issued.

The online courses are self-paced and must be completed within a 60 day period. The on-site portion will consist of a two-hour skills assessment.

The cost for the Personal Care Aide Certification Program is $300. This includes the $50 registration fee. Payment for the program can be paid in full, or in two installments, to be paid before the hands on skills portion of the course.
