Test Your Aides on Alzheimer’s Disease

As a benefit of membership, HCAF provides agencies with In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care, a monthly publication that addresses relevant topics for home health aides. Topics addressed in In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care have included quality, aging, safety, teamwork, falls prevention and more.

The November 2012 edition addresses Alzheimer’s Disease, about which aides will learn to:

  • A description of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Changes in a person’s day to day functioning with Alzheimer’s Disease
  • The Aide’s role in working with a client with Alzheimer’s disease

Each edition of In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care is packed with useful information on the month’s topic as well as a post-test (answer key included) for home health aides so they can earn one hour towards the 12 hours-per-year Medicare requirement!

The current edition and past editions can be accessed on HCAF’s In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care webpage, which is only accessible to HCAF members by clicking here.
