Trial Program


The Continuing Care Assistant certificate program combines hands-on classroom learning with practical clinical experience. You will build knowledge and skills in: addressing individual psychosocial needs, administering personal care, dementia management strategies, gerontology, long-term care philosophy in different settings, promoting independence in a safe environment, working with individuals with different physical and cognitive impairments, and working with people of different cultures. As a continuing care assistant, you’ll work directly with clients in long-term care, home care, assisted living, some areas of acute care, and even in special needs classrooms.
