The importance of health care aides (HCA) to elderly patients and people who require assistance in living their day-to-day lives cannot be understated, and at RPI Consulting Group, we’ve placed thousands of HCAs across Canada in recent years. Read on to find out how RPI can help you with your healthcare staffing needs, which includes health care aides.
What is a health care aide?
Health care aides are responsible for providing assistance to to individuals who are unable to perform daily tasks on their own. HCAs typically work in nursing homes, long-term care (LTC) facilities, and even private homes, and help patients with everything from basic grooming and hygiene, to ensuring that they’re eating a nutritious and well-balanced diet, to helping them take their medication. In short, HCAs play a key role in ensuring that patients can have an acceptable quality of life in spite of their illness, age and/or disability.
