It is my hope that this text, when properly used will be of great benefit to the individual aide or aide intraining in mastering the required skills that would make the individual a good home health aide. The book has been specially tailored as a teaching tool for home health aides.The book has two sections, the tutorial section one and the practical hands on section two. The second section is a good aide or good training tool for practical demonstartion purposes. For the purpose of understanding only, a home health aide does not have to be a Certified Nurses Aide. As a result this book can be used to train and prepare an individual to function in the capacity of a home health aide. The agency must prepare a set of standardized tests for the aides to ensure that the individual have fully internalized the reaching and traning that they have been put through. This book further addresses the rule and regulation (federal and State) that the home health aide must be familiar with. This book is an excellent tool for the home health aide. I strongly encourage all individual who practice and plans to practice as an aide in the home health field to read this book.
