Home Health Aid Certificate Course
Yatindra Sharma Academy for Vocational Education (at Ahmedabad Management Association) initiated a course on Home Healthcare Professions in partnership with Lifeline Foundation in February 2019 in Ahmedabad with the aim to train individuals with basic schooling to acquire skill-sets for providing care to home-bound patients (including geriatric patients and those physically or mentally challenged). Designed to cater to working and non-working professionals, the participants need to attend lectures for 3 days a week, and was aimed also at creating employment opportunities for these individuals by providing them professional grooming which in turn could also help them become entrepreneurs.
Doctors from various branches of medicine and surgery and trained nurses deliver lectures and provide hands-on training using specialized equipment to simulate patient care environment to educate the students. Multiple batches have been trained at the AMA.
